Home Schooling

The Holyoke Public Schools recognize home education as a constitutionally permissible alternative to public school education and remains committed to a positive relationship that fosters the maximum success of all students on approved home education plans. To ensure this success, it is necessary to apply certain standard policies, procedures, and requirements for the effectiveness and efficiency of all home education programs.

Home education plans must be approved by Valerie Annear at vannear@hps.holyoke.ma.us Chief Instructional Officer of the Holyoke Public Schools, prior to the expected commencement of home education programs. Please download the Home Schooling application(PDF) | En Español (PDF) and carefully review the policies, procedures, and requirements for earning approval
