If you are thinking of homeschooling your child, there are many choices. You can elect to work with one complete curriculum or you can blend a variety of curricula to meet your child's needs.
Once your plan is developed, complete the Home Study Educational Plan. It must be submitted when initially registering or reregistering with NDSP.
Please refer to the:
The tabs below explain Home Study in detail as an educational option in NDSP.
Parents should be mindful of purchasing only one program to meet educational requirements for a particular content area (e.g., for a foreign language instruction, choose a local group class OR homeschool curriculum OR a specific virtual school, but not all three).
Note: Parents may not mix educational options by utilizing a tuition charging school at post and homeschooling.
For art, music, and P.E., parents may seek out group lessons in the community. Group lessons are lessons already established in the community for groups of children. No private lessons are authorized. For K-6, a maximum of 2 hours a week per subject area may be utilized for P.E., music or art. For grades 7-12, up to 4 hours a week can be utilized per subject area for P.E., music or art.
