Home School Completion Procedure

Home schooling is an exemption from compulsory attendance under Oregon attendance law. According to ORS 339.010, any child between the ages of 6 and 18 years who has not completed the 12th grade is required to attend school unless they have an exemption under ORS 339.030.

To accommodate parents who consider their home school student “graduated”, LBL can release a student from home school if they are exempt from compulsory attendance because they have acquired equivalent knowledge to that acquired in the courses of study taught in grades Kindergarten through 12 in the public schools, in accordance with ORS 339.030(b).

Please Note: If a parent would like to have a student released from home school because the student has received a diploma or certificate of high school completion, the parent must provide LBL a statement from the awarding school or program indicating the agency by which they are accredited.
