Loudoun County School Board Policy §8-11:
"Instruction of children by their parents in their home has been declared an acceptable form of education by the General Assembly of Virginia provided certain requirements of state law are met. If these requirements are met, these children and their parents satisfy the state compulsory school attendance law.
Parents who desire to provide home instruction for their children should be referred to the Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Services for information on the law and procedures to be followed.
B. Parent Obligations
Any parent who elects to provide home instruction in lieu of school attendance must annually notify the Division Superintendent or his/her designee in August of his/her intention and must provide evidence of having met the requirements of state law and a description of the curriculum to be followed for the coming year. Any parent of any school-age child who does not meet the notification requirements by August 31 of any school year will be subject to other provisions of the state compulsory attendance law."
