Home School Notification

Please Note:

ORS 339.030 has been amended to lower the age of compulsory attendance from 7 to 6.
You are required to notify the ESD of your intent to homeschool if your child is age 6 by Sept. 1st.

The home school year for LBL does not begin until July. Before then we cannot process home school notifications for the upcoming school year. If you turn in a notification for the upcoming school year before July, it will be held and processed once our new school year begins. Once your student is registered for home school, you will receive a confirmation letter. If you turn in an early notification and do not receive a confirmation letter by August 1st, please contact our office. If you have questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact our office 541-812-2687 or email.

Your child’s home school notification will remain active until you notify us of a placement change.  Students cannot be enrolled in a local public school until they have been released from home school.  Please contact our office before registering your student in public/private school, or if you are moving out of the Linn, Benton or Lincoln area.

Oregon online public charter schools are part of the public school system, and not considered a home schooling option. These schools are tuition free, and the entire curriculum is provided. Students enrolled in an Oregon online public charter school are public school students and are NOT considered home school students.

Important Message

LBL ESD is providing modified services due to COVID-19 and the statewide school closure. Please contact 541-812-2600 for assistance. Limited staffing during the closure will make response to public inquiry difficult, and some inquiries may be delayed until programs reopen.
