Nevada Homeshool LawsThe state of Nevada only has two laws that pertain to homeschooling. You will need to file a Notice of Intent with the superintendent of your child's school district and prepare an educational plan of instruction that will be attached to your notice of intent. Then once the superintendent has approved your notice and education plan you will receive a written acknowledgement that you have filed the appropriate documents and you will be free to teach you child from home.
Notice of Intent
The notice of intent is a letter that you will need to send to the superintendent of your child's school district before you begin homeschooling your child. Basically the letter informs the state that you wish to withdraw your child from the public school system and teach them from home. The notice of intent will contain information about your child (name, age, address) as well as information about the homeschool itself. It is important to note that you do NOT have to file this form every year. You only need to file it once, unless any changes need to be made to letter such as a name change or address change. For more information on Nevada's notice of intent as well as a copy of the form click here.
Along with the notice of intent you will need to file an educational plan for your child. The plan will need to cover the topics of:
- English (reading, writing, and composition)
- Social Studies (history, geography, economics, and government)
