Below is a quick reference guide on the homeschooling requirements for the state of Delaware. For more information on the legal requirements visit the HSLDA Delaware page. This site is not a source of legal counsel or advice.

Delaware residents have three homeschooling options per the HSLDA:

Option 1: Homeschooling as a single-family homeschool:
A single-family homeschool means the child is educated primarily by his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s), mostly in their own home.

Option 2: Homeschooling as a multi-family homeschool:
A multi-family homeschool means that children from more than one family are educated primarily by the children’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s), mostly in their own home(s) or in other facilities. In order to establish a multi-family homeschool, you must coordinate with more than one family. The law requires multi-family homeschools to appoint a person to act as a liaison to the Department of Education. This liaison will be responsible for submitting the attendance and enrollment information described below for all the families involved in the multi-family homeschool.

Option 3: Homeschooling as a single-family homeschool coordinated with the local school district:
A single-family homeschool coordinated with the local school district means the child is educated primarily by his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s), mostly in their own home.
