Homeschool in Texas
The only requirements to legally homeschool in Texas are that:
The instruction must be bona fide (i.e. not a sham);
The curriculum must be in visual form (e.g. books, workbooks, video monitor);
The curriculum must include the basic subjects of reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics and good citizenship.
Your child may also be taught in another family’s home or you may use a tutor for instruction.
The MATI Homeschool curriculum meets these requirements!
Choose your curriculum. (In Texas, homeschool curriculum choice is up to the parent.) Your chosen curriculum programs should cover at least the following subjects: reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and good citizenship.
The courts have determined that Texas homeschools are private schools for the purpose of compulsory attendance. Therefore, homeschools are not regulated, do not require teacher certification or third-party curriculum approval and are exempt from compulsory attendance laws.
