Registration Requirements

It's Great to Home Educate! If a child will attend a home school, the parent or person with custody of the child must file a notarized affidavit of intent form with the County Superintendent of Schools registering that intent within 30 days from the time the child begins to attend a homeschool. Download the affidavit of intent to homeschool. For filing purposes fill out a separate affidavit for each child. Notary services are available in the homeschooling office.

An official certified copy (original) of the child’s birth certificate or other reliable proof of the child’s identity and age (review Homeschool Guidelines for other reliable proof of child’s identity) shall also be filed in the county school superintendent’s office. (ARS §15-828.3.B). Photocopies of the original birth certificate are not acceptable. The County Superintendent must also be notified within 30 days of the termination of homeschooling. Download the withdrawal form. If homeschooling is resumed, another affidavit of intent must be filed with the County Superintendent.

The County Superintendent must also be notified of any changes of information. Download the change of information form.
