Idaho does not require homeschool parents to possess any particular qualifications, obtain school district approval, or test their children. If your public school district asks for information about your homeschool program, you are not legally required to furnish it. These are the steps to homeschool legally in Idaho:
1. Select an instructor.
Under Idaho law, you can teach your children yourself. Alternatively, you can have another family member, relative, or unrelated person teach your children.
2. Teach the required subjects
You must teach your children subjects that are commonly and usually taught in the public schools of Idaho. We recommend that parents provide instruction in language arts, math, science, and social studies in grades 1–10, with additional flexibility in grades 11 and 12.
