Homeschool

 
Parents may home school their own children pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. §49-6-3050 by registering with their local education agency (LEA). Parents choosing this educational option must meet specified educational requirements, test the child and report attendance to the local education agency at the end of the year.

By authority of the same statute, parents may also home school their own children by affiliating with and registering with a church related school defined by Tenn. Code Ann. §49-50-801.  If a parent is exercising this educational option, they must provide the school system with verification of enrollment in the non-public school.  Church-related schools must determine what recording-keeping requirements are in place for these parents, as well as testing requirements for the student.  However, church-related schools must keep daily attendance reports which pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated § 49-6-3007(d) shall be open to inspection at all reasonable times, to the director of schools of the system in which the school is located or to the director of school’s authorized representative.
