Home School Registration Learn More

Oregon Revised Statutes require ESDs to provide monitoring services for students not enrolled in public or private school, but for whom parents have chosen home schooling. The NWRESD provides a centralized registration-monitoring process for students residing within the 20 component school districts that parents have registered for home schooling. Oregon's 1999 Legislature significantly reduced the reporting requirements of parents choosing to home school their children.
