The district’s primary role is to be certain that all Home Schools comply with state law and to provide the necessary information and forms to each Home School for compliance. Current Home School families in Lakeville Area Public Schools will receive a letter in July from the district that will direct them to this webpage for sample forms requesting the information to be submitted for the upcoming school year.
