Section 59-65-47. Associations for home schools; 

In lieu of the requirements of Section 59-65-40 or  Section 59-65-45, parents or guardians may teach their children at home  if the instruction is conducted under the auspices of an association for  home schools which has no fewer than fifty members and meets the  requirements of this section. Bona fide membership and continuing  compliance with the academic standards of the associations exempts the  home school from the further requirements of Section 59-65-40 or Section  59-65-45. 

The State Department of Education shall conduct  annually a review of the association standards to ensure that  requirements of the association, at a minimum, include: 

(a) a parent must hold at least a high school diploma or the equivalent general educational development (GED) certificate; 

(b) the instructional year is at least one hundred eighty days; 

(c) the curriculum includes, but is not limited to,  the basic instructional areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science,  and social studies, and in grades seven through twelve, composition and  literature; and 

(d) educational records shall be maintained by the parent-teacher and include: 

(1) a plan book, diary, or other record indicating  subjects taught and activities in which the student and parent-teacher  engage; 

(2) a portfolio of samples of the student’s academic work; and 

(3) a semiannual progress report including attendance  records and individualized documentation of the student’s academic  progress in each of the basic instructional areas specified in item (c)  above. 

By January thirtieth of each year, all associations  shall report the number and grade level of children home schooled  through the association to the children’s respective school districts.
