What is it?
A home-based education program is a program based in the home planned, directed, and evaluated by the parents or guardians, for their own children between the ages of 6 and 17 years of age inclusive. The Home-Based Education Policy Manual is available to assist parents with fulfilling their legal responsibilities in regard to the registration and operation of home-based education programs.
Parents living within the city limits of Lloydminster who elect to provide a Home-based Education Program for their children must register with the Lloydminster Public School Division before commencing their program. Parents must complete the Notice of Intent and Registration Form for Home-based Education and submit their form along with their written Education Plan to fulfill requirements for registration.
How do I put together an Education Plan?
The intent of the written education plan is for parents to demonstrate that they have a positive and constructive approach to the education of their children before commencing their home-based education program.
- SK Home Based Education Policies and Procedures Manual
- Appendix B (page 58-60) includes notification of intent information and the form to fill out.
- Appendix C (page 61) includes the requirements for the written education plan that must be submitted.
- Appendix D (page 62) outlines the Goals of Education for Saskatchewan. The goals chosen for a child’s education plan must not be in contradiction with the goals set out by Saskatchewan Education.
- The education plan must include a minimum of three broad annual goals in each of the four areas of study for each home-based learner - language arts, science, social studies, and mathematics (page 35)
