Home Education Notification Processing is provided to school districts when parents opt to home educate their child. Parents must submit paperwork to the school district to have their child be excused from compulsory attendance. Hamilton County ESC reviews the notification form for accurate completion, contacts the parents regarding the status of their notification, and provides reports to the district regarding the status of each notification.
At the end of each school year, Hamilton County ESC sends reminder notices to the parents of home educated students to remind them to submit a new notification, as well as the required assessment for the new school year.
Hamilton County ESC works with the school district’s attendance officers to coordinate information when students are not in attendance and the parents have not submitted the home school notification for processing.
