Michigan State Homeschool Law Summary

If you are homeschooling in the state of Michigan, you will need the following information:

  • There are no requirements to notify, seek approval, test, file forms, or have any certain teacher qualifications. The burden is on the state to prove if the parents are not teaching their children.
  • Although not required, it is suggested that families inform their local school district of their decision to homeschool.  
  • Also, reporting will be required if the family is seeking eligible special education services from their local public school or intermediate school district.
