See the Full list of Homeschooling Requirements by State

Below is a quick reference guide on the homeschooling requirements for the state of Oregon. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Oregon page.

There are three steps required to comply with Oregon’s homeschooling law per the HSLDA:

1. Notify the education service district (ESD).

You must send a one-time notice of intent to homeschool to your local ESD in writing within 10 days of starting your homeschool program, or within 10 days of withdrawing your child from public school to be taught at home.

2. Test your children in grades 3, 5, 8, and 10.

By August 15 in grades 3, 5, 8, and 10, you must have your child tested. When the legislature lowered the compulsory attendance age to 6, it specifically stated that the testing schedule for homeschool students would not change.

3. Address any disabilities.

If your child has a disability, you must have that child evaluated for satisfactory educational progress according to the method recommended in your child’s individualized education plan (IEP) or privately developed plan. No testing of your student is required unless recommended in the plan.

Visit the HSLDA Oregon page for more information on each of these steps and homeschooling in Oregon.
