Home Schooling

In accordance with state law, Lakeville Area Public Schools is required to ensure that all school-age children living within the district’s boundaries are being educated. 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.

Forms for Mandatory Information, found below, must be submitted before October 1. If complete information – Homeschool Full Report or Letter of Intent to continue Homeschooling, immunizations, parent degrees/certification (if applicable), and norm referenced testing information – is not received, the District must report to the State of Minnesota in November that the Home School is “Not Compliant”.
