Homeschool Compliance

Children who reside in the Longwood Central School District that are taught at home rather than 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.  

Please email all submissions and communications to (attach documents, scanned items or smart phone photos). Submissions will be acknowledged automatically.  After we review your submission(s), we will email you a personalized confirmation of exactly what was received.   

Taking responsibility for teaching your child 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. 

All correspondence will be received, acknowledged, reviewed, and maintained by the Office of Special Programs & Data Reporting.  This includes your annual Notice of Intent, Home Instruction Worksheet, Individualized Home Instruction Plan, all quarterly reports, and year-end assessment results. 

NYS requires Longwood receive your notification of intent every year on July 1 which is the first day of the new school year.
