Homeschooling in WI
Helpful Homeschool Websites
To begin homeschooling at the beginning of the school year...
...go to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website and complete the online form. Complete the online form after the third Friday in September and before October 16. It is our suggestion that you complete it around October 1. You do NOT have to inform your school district or school regarding your intentions. If they send you a registration form, just return it with the statement that your child will not be returning for the new school year. Save the receipt email and make a copy of the online form after you have it filled in.
To remove your child from school during the school year...
...go to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website and complete the online form. After you receive the receipt back by email indicating successful submission, send a letter to your child's school principal. Inform the school of the child's last date of attendance. Begin homeschooling the next day!
Further information, including the Wisconsin Homeschooling Law, can be found on the WPA website.
