Home Schooling

Geauga County Home School Registration

Parents/Guardians interested in educating their child through homeschool, may do so by meeting the requirement of Ohio Law of homeschool. When homeschooling, you are able to select the curriculum and other educational materials that work best for your child. 


Geauga County Superintendents delegate all homeschool notifications to the Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve (ESCWR). This has been approved by the State Board of Education's legal department. In order for homeschoolers to be in compliance with the regulations, you must supply your information to the Superintendent of our local school district. All excusals (except Chardon Local Schools) in Geauga County are filtered through the ESCWR and will have your local Superintendents signature on your excusal. The state board of education's legal department determined that there is no issue with the schools contracting with the ESC to offer this service as long as the correct signature is included.


Ohio's homeschool regulations state that the superintendent shall supply an excusal or any request for more information in writing. (3301-34-03 (C) ) If the superintendent is doing the excusing or the requesting it follows that their signature will be affixed.


A parent who elects to provide home education shall supply [notification] to the superintendent/ESCWR no later than the first week of the start of the public school building the child would attend in the school district of residence or within one week of the date on which the child begins to reside in the district or within one week from the child’s withdrawal from a school. 3301-34-03 Notification
