Public School Access for Homeschoolers—A Legal Summary
California does not have a law granting homeschooled students the right to participate in public school classes and activities; thus, the individual schools and schools districts have the authority to decide whether to allow homeschooler participation. Policies often vary from district to district.
Students wishing to participate in public school classes or activities should contact their local school for information regarding their district's policy.
