New York Notice of Intent to Homeschool

Copy the text between the ruled lines into your own word processing program.

Customize the notice to correctly reflect your contact information, the Superintendent’s information, school year, and your children’s names and grades. Delete instructional text.

If children are in different school districts, send a separate Notice of Intent to each school district.

Exact wording of the law: Notice of intention to instruct at home


Homeschool Parents’ Names
Street Address
City, NY, Zip

Date [Before July 1]

Superintendent of Schools
District Address
or for those in New York City;
NYC Central Office of Homeschooling
333 7th Avenue 12th Fl.
New York, NY 10001

Dear _________ [Use name if you know it or can locate it.]
Superintendent of Schools

We are sending this notice of intention to instruct at home as required of Section 100.10 of the Regulations of the New York State Commissioner of Education.

We intend to homeschool our child[ren] in the school year 20__-20__:
[_Full name of Child #1_], who will be entering grade ___
[_Full name of Child #2_], who will be entering grade ___
[Duplicate line above for additional children, or delete if only one.]


[_At least one parent’s name, typed out_]


Make several copies of each signed document, making note of date mailed. Store in a safe place. If you can hand deliver and get a copy signed by the district official receiving it, so much the better. If you wish to use the mail system, pay the post office to give you a registered receipt of delivery.

While other sites may recommend you give your phone number or email address, you really want them to contact you only by mail so you can retain all correspondence easily in dated order in a file or binder. “Someone told me over the phone I could…” or “I never got the email,” won’t stand up in court. Create and retain copies of your own response letters back.

Sample Letter of Intent In New York
This first homeschooling year has been a bit of a roller coaster ride as we discovered what worked, and what didn’t work for us. Overall, it’s been a fun ride, and we’re doing it again.
