In accordance with state law, we are required to ensure that all school-age children living within the boundaries of the Centennial School District are being educated. Minnesota’s compulsory instruction law requires all children age 7-17 to attend a public or private school. Homeschools are a type of private school.
As a resource to homeschool parents residing in the Centennial School District, the following links have been put together that contain many of the resources, deadlines and forms you will need.
Homeschool Initial Registration Form– Submitted by October 1 of the first year of homeschooling within a resident district, or within 15 days of withdrawing a child from public school.
Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction – Submitted by October 1 of each year after the instructor has provided the same district with a Homeschool Full Report.
Pupil Immunization Record – Immunization records or notarized statement of Conscientious Objection must be submitted with the homeschool full report and updated in 7th grade (age 12) for each student by October 1.
Student Report for Aids to Nonpublic Students (Optional) – Students who are educated in an approved homeschool program are eligible for aid to non-public school funds. In order to be eligible, the form must be submitted by October 1.
Reimbursement Check Request – Eligible homeschool families who have submitted a Student Report for Aids to Nonpublic Students use this form to obtain reimbursement for eligible purchases made during the current school year (purchased on or after July 1, 2021). This form must be submitted by June 1, 2022
Minnesota Statewide Testing Services (Optional) – MSTP provides testing materials for home school educators in Minnesota. The program’s services meet the State of Minnesota yearly requirement for nationally norm-referenced standardized achievement examinations for home schools.
It is imperative that you return all the documents listed above by the due date. The dates listed are mandated by the state and late submissions may result in an inability of the District to reimburse parents for expenses for the school year.
Submit all required reporting forms by mail or email no later than October 1, 2021:
