Home school Texas laws allow you to establish and operate your home school as a private school.
When schooling your child at home, the subjects you are required to teach are reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics and a study of good citizenship.
Of course, if you are pulling your children out of public or private school, you will want to show courtesy by notifying school officials of your decision.
Make sure you keep a copy of your letter for your records. You will also want to ask the school, for your child’s school records and transcript.
To find the home school laws for Texas, you can visit the Texas government website or contact:

When looking for a support group, make sure they offer the services, provide the support, information and opportunities you need and want as a home schooling parent.
Also, when choosing a home school support group, make sure you agree with their mission statement, political and/or religious views.
