The Home schooling Department registers students in Douglas County whose parents or legal guardians intend to educate their children at home. Students between the ages of seven (if birth date is prior to September 1) and 18 who are home schooled are required to be registered with their local Education Service District. The educational progress of home schooled students is monitored on the basis of results from standardized achievement tests at the completion of grades 3, 5, 8 and 10 (OAR 581-021-0026).
The information available on this site is based on Oregon Revised Statute 339.035 and Oregon Administrative Rule 581-021-0026 through 581-021-0035, which are Oregon laws on home schooling.
