New Jersey Homeschooling
The links below to official New Jersey homeschooling information were checked August 1, 2020. It is always best to directly read New Jersey homeschooling information on the State of New Jersey FAQ page, so you are getting current information!
From the FAQ above:
“12. Is a child educated elsewhere than at school eligible to participate in district/state testing?
The local board of education is not required or authorized to test a child educated elsewhere than at school. The local board of education does not have to ensure through testing or another mechanism that instruction is being appropriately delivered or achieving its desired effect, to review the quality of instruction, or to monitor the results. A child educated elsewhere than at school is not required to sit for a state or district standardized test.”
Always check directly with the official New Jersey Dept. of Education FAQ 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.

States are changing their information much more often than past years due to covid-19! We regularly checks links to make sure the state has not changed pages or page addresses, but if you find a link that doesn’t work, the main Department of Education page is included above in case you want to use their search feature to find the information yourself. For example, search for “schooling at home”, “homeschool”, “home school”, “home instruction”, “nonpublic”, or “compulsory school attendance”. However, be careful since a search may return results for old web pages or documents.
