Home Education

Home Education Process


In Ohio, a parent/guardian interested in educating his/her child of compulsory school age at home may request that the child be exempt from compulsory school attendance (under section 3321.04 (A)(2) of the Ohio Revised Code) for home education purposes. Home Education is an educational delivery that is directed by the parent or guardian of a child who has been exempt from attending school. Under this option, the parent/guardian selects the curriculum and education materials and takes responsibility for educating the child. There is no state financial assistance for families who choose this option.

If you elect to provide home education for your child, please submit a completed and signed Home Education Notification Form (PDF) to the superintendent of Monroe Local Schools, 500 Yankee Road, Monroe, OH 45050:

Once we receive your notification, the superintendent will review it within 14 days. If everything is in order and all sections are correctly completed, the district will forward the exemption from compulsory attendance to you which will be applicable for one school year.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Home Education, please feel free to contact Lori Kappers at (513) 360-0533.
