Missouri is a state of much diversity, with wide plains, rugged hills, broad rivers, numerous caves and springs, an abundance of beautiful flora and fauna, and a growing number of homeschooling families.

Known for being stubborn, strong and independent, we "Show-Me-Staters" are difficult to pin down to one description. Homeschoolers represent a broad cross section of the population, and have a lot of resources and freedom available to them in Missouri.

Our lawmakers in both the Senate and the House want and need to hear from homeschoolers about how we feel and what we want for our children in relation to education policy, and especially our rights to homeschool. We must continue to work hard together to maintain our precious freedom to educate our own children as we see fit.

Whether you call Missouri "home" or are just traveling through, there are some incredible places to see, exciting, fun events to take part in and a host of wonderfully interesting people to meet. Educational opportunities abound for those who home school. We hope you enjoy your time here!

A Summary of the Statutory Provisions
for Home Schooling in Missouri:


1. Any parent may educate a child at home. They do not have to have a teaching certificate or meet any education requirements.
---------
2. As of August 28, 1993, a parent or guardian of a child, 7 to 16 years of age, is required to have the child regularly attend some public, private, parochial, parish, home school or a combination of such schools.
---------
3. A home schooling parent must provide 1,000 hours of instruction during the school year (July 1 - the next June 30), with at least 600 hours in the basics, such as reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. At least 400 of the 600 hours must be taught in the home location.
---------
4. A parent who is home schooling a child must maintain the following records:
a. A plan book, diary, daily log, or other written record indicating the subjects taught and the activities engaged in with the student.
b. A portfolio containing samples of the student's academic work.
c. A record of evaluation of the student's academic progress.
---------
5. Handicapped children attending a home school program may receive special education services provided by the local school district, in accordance with Section 162.996 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri and State Plan for Special Education.
---------
6. The law says the homeschooling parent "may" notify the superintendent of schools or the recorder of county deeds in the county where the parents reside. As the law states "may", it is not mandatory.

Did you know that the 24 stars around the center seal of the Missouri flag represent the fact that it was the 24th state to join the union? It was designed by the wife of a former Missouri State Senator. Whether you homeschool or not, you can find out more about all the state symbols at this link:STATE SYMBOLS OF MISSOURI
