The General Court
Before beginning, you need to gain approval from your local school superintendent or school committee. You must demonstrate that you are complying with the schooling requirements of the state by submitting:
a list of material and teaching aids
your teaching qualifications
your plans for ongoing student progress assessment
your plans for an annual evaluation
You have the right to present your proposal as well as witnesses on your behalf, if necessary, during a school committee meeting. If approval is denied, the reasons should be delineated clearly so that you can revise your proposal accordingly.
The school committee MAY require standardized achievement testing and MAY arrange for visits to or observations of your homeschool by school officials.
