The popularity of homeschooling has increased pace in the past five years alone. Why? Perhaps, it’s because you can ensure your child is getting more than just a ‘generic’ education or your family lifestyle isn’t convenient for public school. Whatever the reason, a home-based education is an excellent choice.
Are you considering homeschooling your child in Nevada? Before you make a move, it’s important to abide by the educational laws and regulations of homeschooling set forth by the State of Nevada.
Each state is the U.S. has a very specific set of regulations for homeschooling. If you are thinking about teaching your child at home, you'll need to know the ins and outs of what needs to be done beforehand and during. In this series, Homeschooling Regulations by State, we'll explore information to help with the decision, what to do to get started and what to do correctly to continue.
The regulations, laws and suggestions in this post may not reflect the needs for your particular situation. Not all apply to each individual family.

This will direct you to the states’ Board of Education or government education site.
To start homeschooling your child, make sure to formally withdraw your child from the public school system if the child is currently enrolled in the school. When it comes to the age factor vs. home-based education, the parents/guardians decide when the child is ready for certain academic structures.
Following the above steps, you can start homeschooling your child right away. You can easily find the required forms on the Nevada Department of Education website.
