California Homeschooling Laws

In the public school ISP, the school does everything a regular public school would in terms of record keeping, attendance requirements, etc.

Compulsory Attendance: Between the ages of 6 and 18
Required Subjects: The same as those in the public school in the English language. Parents must inquire independently as to what the syllabus is for each year.
