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.
