Washington state law recognizes the desire of some parents to seek a home-based instruction for their children. A parent who intends to have their child receive home-based instruction in lieu of attendance or enrollment in a public school must file an annual declaration of intent with their child's resident school district.
Please contact email@example.com for questions or assistance.
If you will be providing full-time Home-Based Instruction for your child, complete the form below. This declaration is to be received by the Steilacoom School District Enrollment Office by September 15 of each school year, or within two weeks of moving into our district boundaries.
Completed forms can be sent to the Enrollment Department:
- firstname.lastname@example.org or
- 511 Chambers Street, Steilacoom, WA 98388
If your child will be attending one of our district schools for any services (e.g., speech, OT, etc.) or classes (e.g., music, PE, reading, etc.) in addition to being homeschooled, please contact email@example.com to work with our team to finalize the part-time status.
