Homeschooling and Tennessee Laws
Giles County Schools wants to make parents of homeschooled students aware of an important state law that could affect them. According to Tennessee Law, homeschooled students who are not affiliated with a homeschool agency such as a Category IV church-related school must inform the district of your intent to independently homeschool. For instance, a mom or dad who teaches their child at home is required to inform the district of your intent to independently homeschool. A parent who is registered with a state-approved umbrella organization or a church-related program is not. If you do need to inform Giles County Schools of your intent to homeschool, Please contact Scott Sutton at email@example.com or 931-363-4558.
TSSAA Article II, Section 25 B(3) Home School Rule:
This proposal changes this section so that there is no August 15th deadline to participate. Instead, it would require them to notify the principal of the member school before the first official practice date in the sport.
