Rhode Island Homeschooling
The links below to official Rhode Island homeschooling information were checked August 1, 2020. It is always best to directly read Rhode Island homeschooling information on the State of Rhode Island homeschooling and FAQ page, plus your local school district’s website so you are getting current information!
It appears that home instruction is overseen by the local school district, usually the superintendent’s office. However, the state does say attendance records are required.
Rhode Island Dept. of Education School District Websites (use the Regular & Regional Districts section)
Check your local school district’s website or call them to find local home instruction information.
Always check directly with the official Rhode Island Dept. of Education and local school district’s websites 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.
