    Dear Parents/Guardians -

    The BPS Home School website contains important information regarding the home school enrollment process and other required procedures and parental obligations. You are making a big decision in your child’s life and there are many factors to consider. Please read all the pages of the website carefully and be sure to complete all the required paperwork, as it is essential that both you and the district maintain and submit timely records.

    The procedures outlined on the website are utilized as the standard for reviewing Individualized Home Instruction Plans (IHIPs) and determining substantial equivalence of instruction as required by the NYSED Commissioner’s Regulation 100.10.

    To help us serve our local home school families better, please complete the BPS Home Schooling Service and Information Survey. CLICK HERE to start.
