Nebraska Homeschooling Laws

Nebraska law views a homeschool as a private school that chooses not to meet approval or accreditation criteria based on religious or non-religious reasons. To have your child homeschooled, you first need to “open” a private school in your home and enroll your student in it.

Other steps you must take to follow the homeschooling law in Nebraska include:

  1. Filing a parent or guardian form each year
  2. Submitting a parent representative form annually
  3. Providing an information summary every year

What You Should Know About Filing a Parent or Guardian Form

Both parents must submit a notarized Parent or Guardian form (Form A) in Nebraska. With this document, you declare under oath that the requirements for state approval and accreditation of your school:

  • Interfere with your decisions in directing your child’s education
  • Violate your religious beliefs

You need to submit this form when you start homeschooling in Nebraska and every following year by July 15.

What You Should Know About Filing a Parent Representative Form

You need to submit a Parent Representative form (Form B) when you start to homeschool and by July 15 every subsequent year. With this document, you accept the following responsibilities:

  • Submitting info on student enrollment and attendance
  • Displaying info about instructional monitors (parents)
  • Sharing info about the sequential program of instruction

What You Should Know About Filing an Information Summary

Filing the Information Summary is mandatory within 30 days of submitting the other two forms (A and B) for the first time. You should repeat the action by July 15 each year. The form must include:

  • A scope and sequence for each grade level
  • All “instructional monitors” in your homeschool (usually the parents). You should enter their ages, names, and levels of education
  • A calendar for the school year (July 1–June 30)
