Minnesota’s compulsory instruction law requires all children age 7-17 to attend a public or private school. Homeschools are a type of private school. See Minnesota Statutes, Section 120A.22.
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.
In subsequent years, the parent turns in a Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction by October 1 of each year.
To view the Full Report and Letter of Intent forms, please visit the Minnesota Department of Education website.
Completed forms should be submitted to the Superintendent's Office (6500 Humboldt Ave N. Brooklyn Center 55430) or via fax at 763-560-2647. For questions, please call 763-450-3386.
