Home School

Welcome Homeschool Parents

 The Binghamton, Chenango Forks, Chenango Valley, Deposit, Harpursville, Johnson City, Maine-Endwell, Union-Endicott, Vestal, Whitney Point and Windsor school districts have contracted with Broome-Tioga BOCES to collect and review all documentation related to home schooling. If you wish to instruct your child at home and you live in one of these listed school districts, this website will provide you with current information on homeschooling – including the required forms and other valuable parent resources.

We have created the forms/information to help you through the homeschooling process. As always, you are welcome to use these forms but are not required to do so. Please reference the NYSED regulations on homeschooling for reporting requirements. It is our goal to be of service to the districts and to the homeschool community. Please call our office if you would like to talk to us directly or to schedule an appointment to discuss homeschooling questions in person. 


Letter of Intent
This is a letter from the parent stating that their child/children will be homeschooled.  Please include the following information (so we can send the appropriate paperwork to you): your child/children's full name; school district you reside in; grade level; the date you intend to start home instruction; and your full contact information: address, phone number and e-mail address.
Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP) 
This is a document for parents who plan to homeschool to indicate what curriculum, by subject, they will teach their child/children.  Please use the appropriate grade level form below.

NOTE: Please include your district of residence on all communication. Thank you.
Quarterly Reports 
Parents are required to submit quarterly reports based on the dates they provide in their IHIP. The grade-specific quarterly reports must include the total number of hours of instruction provided, a description of the material covered in each subject, and an evaluation in each subject or a written narrative evaluating the child's progress.
