The District’s responsibility is
to assist parents that choose to home school their child to comply with the
regulations established by the New York State Commissioner of Education. These regulations were adopted to ensure that
all children in the District receive instruction that is at least equivalent to
that being offered to children of the same age and achievement level enrolled
in the District’s program.
NY State Education Links
Below is a link to the NY State
Education Department’s Regulations Section 100.10 which will guide parents in
complying with the Commissioner’s Regulations regarding home instruction. A link to a Home Instruction Q & A from
NYSED is also listed.
Several forms are necessary and require
completion. Please submit all records,
including Individual Home Instruction Plans (IHIP), quarterly reports, and an Annual
Assessment for each child, to Akron Schools, District Office, 47 Bloomingdale
Avenue, Akron, NY 14001. After receipt, a review will be conducted to
insure that they comply with the regulations.
If the review indicates noncompliance, the District will notify the
parent specifically of what is necessary to bring them into compliance.
Assuming total responsibility for
your child’s education is an important decision and one for which you will want
to provide the best experience possible.
Our District staff is available to you. Please contact the District
Office at (716)542-5006 for contact information should you have questions
regarding curriculum, testing or future plans.
