Taking responsibility for teaching your child(ren) at home is a tremendous undertaking. You will make all of the decisions about what to teach and how to teach so that you are meeting the home instruction regulations of NYS.  The district does not provide curriculum, resources or materials. 

1. Provide your Notice of Intent to Homeschool. Either use our form
Longwood Resident Notice of Intent to Homeschool 
or email your notice to to [email protected] .
This will establish your child as a homeschooler for the entire school year from July 1 to June 30.  One is required each year. 

2. You must withdraw your child from his/her current school. Call the school to arrange a visit to do this. 

3. Start working on the IHIP (Individual Home Instruction Plan) that you will submit for 2021-22. 
K-6 IHIP
7th-8 IHIP
9th-12 IHIP

4. The K-12 Home Instruction worksheet (template) will provide other information required by NYS.  It will be used to start your child's homeschool file in our office.

Children who reside in Longwood Central School District but who are taught at home instead of a public, charter, parochial or private school, are considered to be home instructed by New York State.  Parents/guardians who elect to educate children at home are responsible for following the state regulations even if enrolling children in correspondence or online program.  

All correspondence will be received, acknowledged, reviewed, and maintained by the Office of Social Studies, World Languages & ENL.  This includes your annual Notice of Intent, Home Instruction Worksheet, Individualized Home Instruction Plan, all quarterly reports, and year-end assessment results.
