What To Do First

Notice of intent and educational plan

Notice of Intent

If your child is enrolled in a Nevada public school prior to homeschooling you have to officially withdraw your child from the public school.

Contact the school’s principal to do so.  You have 10 days after withdrawing your child to submit the Notice of Intent (NOI) to Homeschool to the Superintendent.

If your child hasn’t ever attended public school then you need to file your NOI by the age of 7.  But If your child is 5 or 6 and already enrolled in a public school you do need to file an NOI to Homeschool within 10 days of officially withdrawing from public school.

You can find the NOI form here.

Your child can still participate in activities and programs if you homeschool.  You would need to complete this form as well

Educational Plan

Along with your NOI you will have to submit your educational plan for each child you are homeschooling in Las Vegas.  Your educational plan needs to include:

  • English – reading, composition, writing
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies – history, geography, economics, government

Here is a simple example of what an educational plan can look like.
