Lake County Regional Office of Education

Here’s Lake County ROE’s information.

Home Schooling

The Illinois School Code and Case Law permit home schooling as an option for parents who wish to do so. The law requires that the child who is home schooled receives an education at least equivalent to the public school program, the instruction is in the English language and that it includes an adequate course of instruction in the prescribed branches of learning, ie: language arts, biological and physical sciences, math, social sciences, fine arts, health and physical development.

In order to satisfy statutory requirements, it is the home educator’s responsibility to provide an organized educational program for the child while utilizing appropriate materials and teaching methods. You can download a list of resources where information may be obtained regarding instructional materials and support. The Regional Office of Education provides this information as a service to those interested in home schooling their children. This is not an endorsement of these organizations or of their publications.

Though you are not required to do so, if you do choose to home school your child/children we ask that you consider registering with our office. You can select to download the registration form below or you may contact our office to have the form mailed to you.

In Lake County, Waukegan has had a daytime curfew for years. Doesn’t seem to be effective with the chronic truancy rate of 17.5%.

Please remember, homeschoolers, that registration is not mandated or necessary:
