Vermont Homeschooling Laws
This state has specific requirements for parents to follow.
Reporting: There is no attendance reporting requirement, although the state requires 175 days of instruction. The parents must file a written notice with the Education Commissioner on or after March 1 for the coming year.
Parents also have to turn in an annual assessment from either (a) a state-approved school teacher; (b) a report from a (boxed) curriculum provider along with the family’s own portfolio of the child’s work or (c) the results of an accepted standardized test, administered according to the state-approved guidelines — usually by a librarian, teacher or other similar third-party.
Compulsory Attendance: 6 to 16 with some broad exceptions.
Required Subjects: Math, reading, writing, English, U.S. and state history, citizenship, physical education, American literature, science and the arts.
Testing: See second paragraph under “Reporting”, above.
