Welcome to Home Education!

Home Education is defined by Florida Statute, as "the sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent or guardian, in order to satisfy attendance requirements of SS.1002.41, 1003.01 (4) and 1003.21 (1)."

This site contains information about the Home Education Program. The materials provided will give you the necessary information to initiate and maintain a Home Education Program for your child(ren).

Florida Statute 1002.41 requires that you notify the District Superintendent or designee in writing of your intent to initiate a Home Education Program. In order to register you will need to complete and mail your Letter of Intent.

Important: The Clay County School District is not authorized by the Florida Department of Education to award high school diplomas to home educated students.
