It is highly recommended to read section ED315 of New Hampshire’s CHAPTER Ed 300  ADMINISTRATION OF MINIMUM STANDARDS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS:

From that, it appears the homeschool parent/guardian should submit an intent to homeschool to the last school enrolled within 5 days of homeschooling. e.g. local school superintendent or private school. It also appears an annual achievement test should normally be completed.  Along with reviewing the ED315 section of the above document, contact your local superintendent (SAU) for current requirements or questions for your area. Home education students are exempt from school attendance reporting according to but should notify the New Hampshire Dept. of Education when a home educated student has graduated.
