Homeschool Laws

According to Nevada Revised Statute 392.040, “Except as otherwise provided by law, each parent, custodial parent, guardian or other person in the State of Nevada having control or charge of any child between the ages of 7 and 18 years shall send the child to a public school during all the time the public school is in session in the school district in which the child resides unless the child has graduated from high school.”

Per NRS 392.070, “Attendance of a child required by the provisions of NRS 392.040 must be excused when:

  • The child is enrolled in a private school pursuant to chapter 394 of NRS; or
  • A parent of the child chooses to provide education to the child and files a notice of intent to homeschool the child with the superintendent of schools of the school district in which the child resides in accordance with NRS 388D.020.”

Homeschool Requirements

Even though Nevada does not highly regulate homeschooling, there are some Nevada homeschool requirements you must satisfy when you homeschool:

  • Begin homeschooling by age 7.
  • File the required Notice of Intent to Homeschool with the required Educational Plan attached. The Notice of Intent to Homeschool only needs to be filed once when beginning homeschooling.
  • Provide instruction in the following required subject areas: English, including reading, composition, and writing; mathematics; science; and social studies, including history, geography, economics, and government. As stated on the Notice of Intent to Homeschool, “An educational plan that contains these requirements must not be used in any manner as a basis for denial of a notice of intent to homeschool that is otherwise complete. The parent is not required to ensure that each subject is taught each year that the child is homeschooled.”
  • File the Notice of Intent to Participate in Programs and Activities annually if your homeschooled child is “requesting participation in programs of special education, any classes or activities, or sports or interscholastic activities and events, at a public or charter school pursuant to NRS 388D.070NRS 392.072, & NRS 392.074.”
  • Stay current with homeschooling laws and requirements.

Record Keeping

In Nevada, there are no required records for parents to keep when homeschooling. However, many families choose to maintain a homeschool portfolio for their own records and to keep track of their child’s progress. These can be helpful since they make it easier to create a high school transcript when the time comes, especially for those students planning to attend college.

The Modify™ app makes record keeping simple and keeps all your records organized. 

Graduation requirements

The state of Nevada does not have any specific graduation requirements for students who are homeschooled. It is advisable that parents follow or customize an appropriate course of study or high school program based on the student’s plans post graduation. However, parents are free to review graduation requirements for public, private or online high schools if they so choose.

Homeschooled students in Nevada will not receive a high school diploma from a public school, but parents can generate a diploma to present to their student upon completion of high school. Parents are also in charge of creating their own transcripts, especially if the student plans on receiving a post-secondary education.

Modify™ helps homeschoolers to keep all necessary records and transcripts.
