Home Schooling Information
Parents residing in the Johnstown-Monroe, Lakewood, North Fork or Southwest Licking school districts who wish to homeschool their child/ren should send notification to their local Superintendent or  directly to:

Licking County ESC
 Attn: Homeschool
145 North Quentin Road
Newark, OH 43055

If you do not reside in one of the districts listed above, please contact your district of residence in regards to where to file your notification.
Notification must be completed each year you intend to homeschool. This information should be sent by the start of your residing district’s first week of school or upon moving into the district. If you have homeschooled the previous year, an assessment for each child needs to accompany your notification.

Notifications will be reviewed upon submission. If items are missing or incomplete, you will be contacted and given the opportunity to submit addtional information and/or materials. Once a notification is found in compliance, a written letter of excuse from school attendance is given by the resident District Superintendent.

We politely request that you contact your district office  or the Licking County ESC office in the event your child is placed into private or public school and/or your family moves from the district.

You may use the notification and/or curriculum forms provided or are welcome to provide the information, meeting state requirements, in your own format.  If you have questions, please refer to the Ohio Department of Education Website at http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Ohio-Education-Options/Home-Schooling. After reviewing their site, if you need further assistance, please contact the Licking County ESC office at 740-349-6084.
