Home schooling in the State of North Carolina is governed by the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education (NCDNPE). Public schools do not provide information or assistance related to home schooling. For information, please contact the NCDNPE directly at (919) 733-4276. You may also access detailed information at their website, http://www.ncdnpe.org.
If your child is currently enrolled in a Buncombe County School, you must provide proof of registration with the NCDNPE before you are allowed to withdraw your child from school. If the student stops attending school before home school registration proof is presented, your child will be accruing unexcused absences. This could place the student in violation of attendance law – truancy charges may be filed if your child exceeds the allowed number of absences. For information regarding attendance policy, please see District Policies 401, 402, and 403 here, http://http://www.buncombe.k12.nc.us/Page/51.
