Home Schooling Information
Douglas ESD registers students in Douglas County whose parents or legal guardians intend to educate their children at home. Students between the ages of six (if birth date is prior to September 1) and 18 who are home schooled are required to be registered with their local Education Service District. The educational progress of home schooled students is monitored on the basis of results from standardized achievement tests at the completion of grades 3, 5, 8 and 10 (OAR 581-021-0026).
