Home Instruction (Home Schooling)

Parents of, or persons in parental relation to, compulsory school age children have the legal right to instruct their children at home. If a child is being educated at home, the local school district must be assured that the child is receiving instruction in certain required courses/subjects.

Parents or guardians who wish to home school their children must provide written notice of intent to the school district superintendent. The school district will respond to the family and provide a copy of the home instruction regulations as well as an individualized home instruction plan (IHIP) form to complete. Parents or guardians are responsible for identifying the curriculum materials that they will use to instruct their children in the required subject areas.

Please review the home instruction regulations on the New York State Department of Education Home Instruction website (linked below), which provide greater detail of the process described above and other home instruction requirements. Links to Hilton specific documents are located below. 

If you need any assistance, please reach out to the Office of Instruction.
