Homeschooling Process – Tips for parents:
Homeschooling is an option available to all parents under the Education Act.
Families interested in this option need to contact Dr. Marian Lothian, Director of Educational Services for the WQSB at the board office, who oversees homeschooling
Perspective families should inform themselves by reading the Québec Government Policy Framework for Home Schooling which outlines the duties and responsibilities of all stakeholders, and review the Québec Education Program for the grade levels of the children to be home schooled. Both electronic links can be forwarded from our director’s office
The educational yearly plan for each child to be homeschooled needs to be forwarded to the WQSB for approval prior to the start-up of the school year, and general guidance is offered to families as needed
The planning, textbooks, and learning materials are the responsibility of the homeschool family.
Once approved for homeschooling, students are to be evaluated annually within their local community school during term 3 (April to June). Results are given to parents in order to provide feedback as to how the student is progressing academically.
