Legal Information

How Do I File the Required Form PI-1206?
In Wisconsin, we must file form PI-1206 with the Department of Public Instruction, not asking for permission, but informing them that we are instructing our children at home. This form attests that we are not circumventing the school attendance laws and are providing at least 875 hours of instruction per year covering at least reading, language arts, math, social studies, science and health.

Protecting Wisconsin Law
In June 2016, the WPA Board approved the creation of a Legislative Watch Committee, headed by our Issues Director. The LWC keeps up-to-date on state and national issues that may affect Wisconsin homeschool law. They watch, analyze, and call on members when action is needed.

Wisconsin Education Code For Homeschooling

Home-Based Private Education Program (Home Schooling)
Parents must complete the PI-1206 form every school year. The Department of Public Instruction does not provide personal consultation and technical assistance regarding home-based private educational programs. The PI-1206 must be submitted online. Paper copies are no longer accepted.
