The Licking County ESC Offices are Closed to the General Public!
In an effort to minimize the spread of the Coronavirus, the ESC has closed their offices to the general public.  Our staff will continue to monitor phone messages and emails and respond as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Thank you for your understanding and patience!
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:

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. Ideally this information should reach our office by the start of your residing district’s first day of school or upon moving into the district. In addition, if you have homeschooled the previous year, an assessment for each child must accompany your notification.

Once we have received your notification, it will be reviewed. If items are missing or incomplete, you will be contacted and will be given the opportunity to resubmit any item/s found deficient. Written correspondence will be provided to you once all notification materials are reviewed and found to be in compliance with state law. The written excuse from school attendance is given by the resident District Superintendent.

We politely request that you contact our 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  After reviewing their site, if you need further assistance, please contact our office at 740-349-6087.
