Notice of Intent to Home School

The Notice of Intent to Home School (NOI) is the registration form required by law each academic year in order to home school in Arkansas. By submitting an NOI, parents assume the full responsibility of educating their children – including the financial cost of curriculum – that would otherwise fall to the local public school district in which they reside. 
 
  • June 15 - First day the NOI form will be accepted for the upcoming school year. All forms submitted before this date will be processed for the preceding school year.
  • August 15 - Any NOI form submitted after this date will be subject to a 14-day waiting period before releasing a student to be home schooled. The superintendent or local school district board has the authority to waive this waiting period upon request.

Parents may complete the NOI form online or on paper, as outlined below:
