Home Education, as defined by Florida’s law, is “sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent in order to satisfy the attendance requirements of 1002.41, 1003.01(13), and 1003.21(1).” Please consult the FAQ portion of the FPEA website for more details regarding home educating at the kindergarten and first grade levels, IS KINDERGARTEN MANDATORY?, http://fpea.com/about-homeschooling/faq.
Home Education is a parent-directed education alternative. Home Education allows the freedom to explore and learn at the pace of the individual student. Parents who provide instruction to their children at home are requested to read carefully and comply with all of the state statutes and regulations governing the operations of a Home Education Program.
