Recently passed legislation in Minnesota now only requires homeschooling parents to report their intent to homeschool at the beginning and the end of the school year.
Previously, quarterly report cards had to be sent to the school district’s superintendent if the parents lacked a college degree.
Additionally, the requirement to have the superintendent visit the homes of each homeschooling family was removed as well.
According to GrandForksHerald.com, the new law lets homeschoolers “save the time and money” and allows them to “continue to do the good job they are doing.”
Some other changes include the ability for parents to teach driver’s education classes and a change to the reporting requirements regarding immunizations.
