Hamilton County ESC provides Home Education Notification Processing services for parents who choose to home educate their children for the following school districts: Finneytown, Northwest, Oak Hills, and Southwest. To have student(s) excused from compulsory attendance, parents are required to submit paperwork to the school district. As part of the service, Hamilton County ESC reviews the notification form for accuracy and contacts parents regarding the status of their notification. Reports are also provided to the district regarding the status of each notification.
Towards the end of each school year, Hamilton County ESC sends reminder notices to parents of home-educated students, urging them to submit a new notification to ensure the continuation of the education process. Hamilton County ESC coordinates with school district attendance officers when parents fail to submit home school notifications for processing.
As of October 1, 2023, reporting assessment scores is no longer required.
