Recent Ohio Homeschooling Law Change

On July 5, 2023, Ohio passed a major change that affects homeschooling families. Prior to this date, the right to home educate was not written as an actual law, but rather located in Ohio's Administrative Code. With the passing of the recent budget, it is now placed as a law in the Ohio Revised Code under (RC 3321.042). This new law changes the requirements for parents when it comes to notification to their school district. The old regulations, which are still applicable for the start of the upcoming school year, require parents to submit a "notification of intent" that consisted of formal details regarding curriculum that was to planned to be used. Beginning in October, Ohio homeschooling parents will only be required to issue a notification letter stating that they will be home educating their child or children in accordance with the new law. All parents who home educate, or are thinking about home education, should become members of Christian Home Educators of Ohio (CHEO) and Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) to access their wealth of resources and to stay up-to-date on all relevant issues.
