Home Education Program

  • In order to commence a home education program, the parent or legal guardian having custody of the home-educated child who will be responsible for the provision of instruction to the child (e.g., “the Supervisor”), must submit to the District’s Home Education Administrator, 6820 Market Street, Russell, PA 16345, a notarized affidavit.

    1. The initial home education affidavit may be submitted at any time during the school year, but all subsequent affidavits are due by August 1st for the following school year. (24 P.S. §13-1327.1(b)(1)).
    2. If a child who will be reaching the age of eight (8) years during the upcoming school year has never been enrolled in any legal educational option in Pennsylvania (public school; private school; private tutoring; or home education program), the parent/legal guardian must submit the affidavit when the child turns eight (8) years (prior to his/her 8th birthday). The home education program will not officially “exist” unless or until the affidavit is submitted to the school district of residence.

    Home School Evaluations are due by June 30th annually. 

    Please drop off Evaluations and Affidavits at the Administration Building located at

    Warren County School District Central Office
