Welcome to Broward Home Education
If you are choosing to enroll into Home Education, please read the information below. You may click on any of the blue highlighted links, forms or statutes for further directions and procedures to comply with Home Education Enrollment.
Home education is in lieu of attending a public, charter or private school.
Upon deciding to establish and maintain a home education program for your child, you will be governed by Florida statutes regarding compulsory school age attendance laws as they relate to home education. A student must be of school age to be enrolled in Home Education, as specified in section 1003.21, Florida Statutes.
Home Education is 100% parent driven. By enrolling in home education, the parent is assuming all educational responsibilities regardless of the mechanism used to educate their child. This includes all virtual (FLVS), correspondence, on-line curriculum or support groups. The Home Education Office does not have access to any of the above third party educational records.
Students with a prior pattern of public school non-attendance will be subject to monthly portfolio reviews.
Please note that Broward County Public Schools and the Home Education Office does not issue a high school diploma or certificate of completion, books, curricula or materials.
