Texas State Homeschool Law Summary

If you are homeschooling in the state of Texas, you will need to follow this step:

  1. Use written curriculum for the following subjects: reading, spelling, grammar, math, and a course in good citizenship.
  2. Compulsory attendance is required for children from age 6 until they turn 19 unless they graduate or take the GED before that.
  3. Although not required, it is recommended that you let your school district know that you will be homeschooling, especially if your student had previously been enrolled in the public school. This will help to avoid any requests for information about your child’s enrollment and attendance status.
