State Guidelines

Elementary families wishing to participate in the Family Montessori Homeschool Option will  need to officially register their child for home education by notifying the district Superintendent.

Based on state home school requirements, the parent takes ultimate responsibility for curriculum and education.  However, our full-time, certified  teacher works to assist families in making sure that Ohio curriculum standards are met as well as the requirement for 900 hours, both in and out of the classroom.

According to ODE guidelines, at the end of each year, the home school parent must have the child evaluated by either a standardized test, portfolio review by certified teacher or per agreement between the parent and the Superintendent.
