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 home school if your child is age 6 by Sept. 1st.

The home school year for LBL ESD 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.
