Home Education in Taylor County

District Mission Statement:

The Taylor County School District is committed to equipping students for life-long learning through lessons in academics, accountability, and attitude.


Welcome to the Taylor County District Home Education Website. This website is designed to provide parents and guardians with the procedures necessary to successfully home educate their child in Taylor County.

According to Florida Statute 1002.41, parents are eligible to home educate their children.  Home education is defined by FS as “sequentially progressive instruction of a student by his/her parent or guardian in order to satisfy school attendance requirements.

Please review the legal responsibilities and obligations carefully prior to enrolling your child into home education. I also suggest that you review the information provided by the Office of Independent Education and Parental Choice Website and Florida Department of Education information for Home Education.
