Home Based Schooling

Families may, for a variety of reasons, elect to educate their children at home, on a home based program. Students who are in a home based program must be registered at the division office.

There are several annual requirements to be enrolled in a home school program for each student. Required documents and guides are provided in the documents section below.

  1. Complete and send in a Home School Student Registration Form- Due August 15
  2. Submit a Written Education Plan- Due August 15
  3. Provide an end of the school year progress report- prior to June 20. See page 60 of the Saskatchewan Home-based Education Policy Manual (2012) for details regarding the expectations.
  4. Parents are also required to maintain a summative record for the home-based learner. This summative record must be kept until the student stops a home-based education program or attains the age of 18  years.

If a student wishes to return to the public school system after being home- schooled parents are required to provide the school with a copy of the student's summative record for each school year or part of a school year that the student was a home-based learner.

Home-based education students who are nearing high school age should pay close attention to regulations concerning early level credits, available below.

Parents who are contemplating a home based program are encouraged to contact the Home Schooling Coordinator, Aaron Hiske. Once a decision is made to home school, in addition to registering their child as a home-based education student, parents must inform the school they are leaving so the school can plan accordingly.
