Home Education Law Amendment Section 1327.1(f.2) (1)-(5)

Effective beginning with the 2023-24 school year, school districts must allow home educated students to participate in any cocurricular activity that merges extracurricular activities with a required academic course, academic courses (equaling up to at least one quarter of the school day for full-time students), and career and technical education (CTE) programs. Section 1327.1(f.2) (1)-(5) of the School Code requires school districts to develop policies and procedures to permit a child who is enrolled in a home education program to participate in any cocurricular activity or CTE program. The board of school directors may adopt further policies to implement the participation of home education students in cocurricular activities, academic courses, and CTE programs. School districts should establish policies and procedures for home education students including procedures addressing enrollment and attendance of students from home education programs into classes and CTE programs.

Compulsory Attendance Law

Effective with the 2020-21 school year, a child must comply with compulsory attendance from ages six to 18, or until graduation.

  • The student is enrolled in a public school in kindergarten or above,

  • The student is enrolled in a private school or private tutoring program in first grade or above, or

  • The parent has submitted an affidavit for a home education program for first grade or above. Students may begin a new home education program or continue in a home education as long as they are of school age (graduation or the end of the school term in which the student reaches the age of 21, whichever comes first; 22 Pa.
