Home Education Program

A student must be of school age to enroll in Home Education, as specified in section  1003.21, Florida Statutes (F.S.). Further, home education students in grades K through 12 are required to have age-appropriate immunizations along with proper health certificates to participate in any Miami-Dade County Public School campus-based activity or testing -  s.1003.22.

To enroll your child in Home Education, the custodial parent of the student is to:

  • Submit electronically the Notice of Intent within 30 days to establish a home education program - s.1002.41 home education programs. Prior to enrolling in home education, the child must be withdrawn from a public or private school. If the child has never been enrolled in a Miami-Dade County Public School, the Notice of Intent is to be submitted along with requested district documentation.
  • Maintain a portfolio containing work samples, reading lists (title, author), a log of educational activities and any other materials used/ or developed by the student. Each student's portfolio is to be kept for two years and be made available for inspection by the Superintendent's designee, with a 15-day written notice.
  • Provide an Annual Evaluation no later than your anniversary date.
  • Submit a Notice of Termination to conclude the home education program within 30 days of termination.   

All documents associated with Home Education are to be sent electronically to the Home Education Office at HomeEducation@dadeschools.net.
