    Home Schooling in MISSISSIPPI

     

    Compulsory Attendance Ages

     

    Age of 6 on or before September 1 … and has not attained the age of 17 on or before September 1…and shall include any child who has attained or will attain the age of five (5) years on or before September 1 and has enrolled in a full day public school kindergarten program. A parent or guardian may disenroll a child from the kindergarten program once, and the child shall not be compulsory attendance age until age six.” Mississippi Code Annotated § 37-13-91.

     

    Required Days of Instruction

     

    180 days, “except that the ‘nonpublic’ school term shall be the number of days that each school shall require for promotion from grade to grade.” Home instruction programs are included in the definition of “nonpublic school.”) § 37-13-91(2) (e).

     

    Subjects

     

    Math, Language Arts/English, Science, Social Studies/History, Foreign Language, etc… (Pre-k, 1st -6th, 7th -8th, 9th-12th)

    One of the challenges of homeschool education is selecting curriculum that meets the needs of each child. Many families find that what fits one child, may not fit another, or that what worked well one semester, may feel stale and stop working the next. Or in some cases, what works for one child in one subject, does not work for the same child in another subject. Well, nobody said it was going to be easy.


    What most families discover is that their family's educational needs cannot be met by a single curriculum. And that blending several homeschool programs and approaches can increase effectiveness. This eclectic homeschool approach allows the optimal education for your child.

    Home School Statute - Miss. Code Ann. § 37-13-91(3) (c)

     

    A home school parent is required to comply with the following:

    1. The parent, guardian, or custodian of the children must file a “certificate of enrollment” including names, address, and telephone number of parents and children, dates of birth of children, and a “simple description of the type of education the children are receiving.” The certificate must be submitted by September 15 of each school year to the school attendance officer where the child resides.

    “Any parent, guardian, or custodian found by the school attendance officer to be in noncompliance with this section shall, after written notice of such noncompliance by the school attendance officer, comply with this subsection within 10 days after such notice or be in violation of this section.”

     

    2. A parent who has enrolled his child in the public school may, after Sept. 15, still enroll the child in a “legitimate home instruction program and send the certificate of enrollment to the school attendance officer” even though he missed the deadline.

     

    3. A child must be educated in a “legitimate home instruction program” which is one that is not operated for the “purpose of avoiding or circumventing the compulsory attendance law.”

     

    4. “It is not the intention of this section to impair the primary right and the obligation of the parents ... to choose the proper education and training” for their children, “and nothing in this section shall be construed to grant the State of Mississippi ... authority to control, manage or supervise” the private education of children. “And this section shall never be construed so as to grant, by implication or otherwise, any right or authority to any state agency or other entity to control, manage, supervise, provide for or affect the operation, management, program, curriculum, admissions policy or discipline of any such school or home instruction program.” Miss. Code Ann. 37-13-91(9).

     

    Note: The information in this section DOES NOT CONSTITUTE THE GIVING OF LEGAL ADVICE by the Hinds County School District or it’s designees regarding a parent and/or guardian choosing to home school their child
