Home-Based Instruction

At the beginning of the school year, each parent whose child is receiving home-based instruction for that school year must file a Declaration of Intent to Home School by September 15 of the school year or throughout the year as they decide to provide home-based instruction.

Request for Part-Time Attendance or Ancillary Services

Students receiving home-based instruction or enrolled in private school are permitted to enroll and receive ancillary services, provided that such students are otherwise eligible for full-time enrollment in the school district and such courses or services are not available in the student’s private school or an approved extension. Students who are receiving home-based instruction and taking courses at or receiving ancillary services from the district or both, or involved in an approved work training program, will need to submit a Request for Part-time Attendance or Ancillary Services Form each school year.

Ancillary service is defined to include counseling, testing, remedial instruction, communication disorders services, physical and occupational therapy, health services, psychological services, tutorial services such as home instruction for the physically disabled and sports activities.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
