Enrolling your child in a satellite of an accredited day or boarding school:
You may teach your children at home if they are enrolled in an extension or satellite of a day or boarding school that is accredited by an accrediting association approved by the State Board of Education.
Here is what to do if you have a student who has been identified under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as needing special education services (not including those identified as gifted and/or talented):You must have your home education program approved by a state-certified special education teacher or a licensed clinical or certified school psychologist. The written approval must be submitted with your notarized affidavit.
Note: The Pennsylvania Department of Education has taken the position that if you terminate your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP), the requirement for approval of your child’s home education program no longer applies, and the school district will not provide services.
