Q: Is homeschooling legal in California?
A: Yes. Despite the efforts of anti-homeschooling forces to frighten parents into thinking otherwise, the legality of homeschooling in California was decided once and for all, on August 8, 2008, the 2nd Appellate District, California Court of Appeals, in the case of Jonathan L., et al., Petitioners, v. The Superior Court of Los Angeles County , Cal. Ct. App., 2nd Dist., Div. 3 (2008), B192878. If you are removing your child from school, you are not required to notify the local school district, once the Private School Affidavit (PSA) is filed. Of course, doing so, may save you misunderstandings and some minor headaches about truancy, etc. If your child has never been in school, you do not have to notify anyone, once the PSA is filed. While the actual statutes regarding homeschooling are somewhat vague, the Appellate Court’s ruling is definitive. For further legal information see our Laws tab on this website.
