Notice of Intent



Notice of Intent
Before you begin homeschooling, you must send in a Notice of Intent letter to your school district fourteen days prior to establishing the program or be under the guidance of an umbrella school (this may be different if you are participating in a public school extension like Apex or Options).

The information in the Notice of Intent should include the child's name, age, place of residence, and number of days and hours of attendance. Providing additional information is strictly voluntary.

Colorado homeschool law requires that children age 6 to 17 be taught an average of four hours per day, at least 172 days per year, by an adult relative. The adult relative must provide at least 51% of total instructional hours. Additional hours may be given by a tutor. There are exceptions for homeschoolers to the stated ages of this compulsory attendance law who are using the Notice of Intent. An exemption must be in place for students who are age 6 by August 1st, but teaching does not need to begin until age 7. Also, for those following the Notice of Intent exemption, students can be finished with school at age 16. Homeschoolers enrolled in an independent school should follow the age requirements for that school.

Homeschoolers who do not wish to register with the school system may join an umbrella school.
