Each year, a small number of residents of the Sauk Rapids-Rice school district choose to establish a homeschool for their children. These individuals are reminded of a number of annual reporting requirements and non-public school aid application deadlines as set forth in Minnesota Statutes. Both the reporting requirements and the aid applications are processed through the local public school.
Registering with Local School District
A parent who teaches homeschool must turn in a Full Report to the student’s resident school superintendent:
· By October 1 of the first year the child is homeschooled after reaching age seven.
· Within 15 days of withdrawing a child from public school to homeschool.
Within 15 days of moving out of a district, the parent must notify the old district of the move. They must turn in the Full Report to the new district by October 1 of the next year.
