Always check directly with the official Alaska Dept. of Education website to verify information. Even if some states may not require it, it is usually a good idea to let your last school know you will not be returning to avoid being counted as absent.

Apparent Requirements for all students not in public education:

According to the Alaska Dept. of Education FAQ page ( ),  “Children schooled at home by their parents or guardians are exempt from the Compulsory School Attendance Law. Parents are not required to register with the state or their local school district, and no testing or other requirements are placed on home schools not funded with public dollars.”
