Home education is defined by Florida Statute as “the sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent in order to satisfy the attendance requirements of ss. 1002.41 , 1003.01 (13), and 1003.21 (1).” By enrolling in home education, parents/guardians are assuming all educational responsibilities regardless of the mechanism used to educate their students. As a result, home education students are not provided any supports by the district, i.e., books, curriculum, IEP accommodations, 504 accommodations, etc. Additionally, there is no diploma issued by the public school system in Florida for the completion of a home education program. A signed affidavit of completion (notarized letter) submitted by the student’s parent attesting that the student has completed a home education program, pursuant to the requirements of s. 1002.41 , F.S. is the legal document of completion.
