Homeschooling in Idaho

Idaho Homeschool Laws & Information

Homeschooling is regulated at the state level and changes may be made to the relevant statutes at any time. Always consult the actual state code, which is usually online at your state's official website, for the most up to date and accurate legal information with regard to homeschooling. Also keep in mind that interpretations of the code -- whether provided by school districts or homeschool groups -- may or may not be an accurate reflection of the law. Always combine interpretations with your own reading of the statute itself.

Although we try to keep our links up to date, state laws change regurlarly. The information at the links provided below contain information that may or may not be current.
