Home School Information

The paperwork you complete will depend on your home school status:

>  First year home school (or returning after being enrolled in public school) or have a new address:
Complete the “Initial Registration Form for Unaccredited Nonpublic Schools (including homeschools)” and provide current vaccination records or a notarized conscientious objection statement

>  Continuing home school:
Complete the “Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction

>   In addition, if you have a student age 12 (Grade 7):
You will need to submit current vaccination records or a notarized conscientious objection statement

You must have on file at the District Office compulsory information by October 1 to home school your student(s), or the student(s) must be registered and attending Milaca Schools or a private school, to avoid being truant.

 

It is the home school’s responsibility to maintain education records, including report cards and testing scores (nationally normed reference testing results). These records will be necessary if the student enrolls in public school at a later date. Test order forms can be found at https://oms.umn.edu/departments/mstp/about.php?q=3

 

The Student Report for Aids to Non Public Students (ED-01650 PDFWord doc) is also due on October 1. If you are expecting reimbursement do not check the nonparticipation boxes on this form. The allotment for textbooks, standardized tests and individualized instructional materials for the 2020/21 school year is $85.59. This amount is subject to change; the allocation amount is provided by the state. Any forms received after 3:00 p.m. on October 1 will not be reimbursed. Please note: only expenses for the 2020-2021 school year are eligible for reimbursement. Purchase or order your materials after July 1, 2020. Receipts dated prior to July 1, 2020 will not be processed for the school year 2020/21. You must submit receipts and the items must also meet the state guidelines. In addition, please sign and return the voucher to receive reimbursement. Deadline for presenting receipts and materials for reimbursement for the school year is April 15, 2021.
