Arizona State Homeschool Law Summary

If you are homeschooling in the state of Arizona, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. File a notarized affidavit. The parent or guardian must file a notarized affidavit of intent to operate a homeschool program with the county school superintendent within 30 days after homeschooling begins. It must include the child’s name; date of birth; current address; and the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of the persons who currently have custody of the child.

  2. Give proof of child’s identity. The parent or guardian must also provide the county school superintendent either a “certified copy of the child’s birth certificate” or “other reliable proof of the child’s identity and age with an affidavit explaining the inability to provide a copy of the birth certificate.”
  3.  You must include reading, grammar, math, social studies, and science in your homeschool curriculum.
