What is Home-Based Education?
A home-based education program is a program based from home directed by the parent(s) for their own children between the ages of 5 and 17 years of age. The Ministry of Saskatchewan's Home-Based Education: Policy and Procedures Manual is available to assist parents with fulfilling their legal responsibilities in regard to the registration and operation of home-based education programs.
When to register
Parents residing within the North East School Division boundaries who choose to provide a Home-based Education Program for their children must register with the North East School Division before beginning their program.
Registrations will be accepted between August 15 – September 15 of each year. Parents can register after the deadline anytime throughout the year, but then do not qualify for any financial reimbursement from the school division.
How to Register
Parents must complete the following two documents: (** each student will need a separate education plan)
and submit to: North East School Division, Box 6000, Melfort, SK S0E 1A0 Attention: Triki Zenner
or you may scan/email both documents to: Triki Zenner - HomeSchool@nesd.ca
How to write an Educational Plan
The purpose of the written educational plan is for parents to demonstrate that they have a positive and constructive approach to the education of their children before beginning their home-based education program.
If you require assistance, our Home-Based Education Monitor is available to provide educational consultation to home-based educators as you prepare your written education plan.
A written education plan is required for each student in your family.
