You should follow the law of the state in which you are physically present.

Why? When you are physically present in a state, even temporarily, you are subject to that state’s laws—and often to the jurisdiction of its courts. So you could be required to comply with that state’s homeschool law. This is true even if your legal residency is in another state and you are only living elsewhere temporarily (such as if you are an active member of the military completing a temporary assignment).

Will you be living in another state longer than a month while that state’s public schools are in session? HSLDA generally recommends that you comply with that state’s homeschool requirements. This general recommendation applies even if you and/or your spouse pay taxes, own property, and/or have employment in a different state.

If you’re an HSLDA member, please contact our Legal Team for specific advice about how state home education laws apply in your specific situation.
