House Bills 39 and 706, passed during the 2012 legislative session and signed by the Governor, move the responsibility of home school reporting from local school systems to the Georgia Department of Education beginning July 1, 2012. The Georgia Department of Education (GDOE) developed a web-based system to efficiently comply with the new homeschool requirements. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to use the web-based system to submit their home school Declaration of Intent and attendance records as doing so will save time and resources for both the parent/guardian and the GDOE. Please be advised that the GDOE web-based system is not affiliated with any vendor offering services to homeschool parents/guardians.
The GDOE web-based system is located on GDOE’s web site (www.gdoe.org). CLICK HERE to visit the home school web page.
For parents/guardians who do not wish to utilize the web-based system, the GDOE will also provide for the paper submittal of home school documentation. Parents/guardians may submit their home school documentation via mail or fax to the GaDOE at the contact information below:
