Frequently Asked Questions – Updated
NHN’s Frequently Asked Questions have LOTS of great answers to questions you may have regarding homeschooling in Nevada. We work hard to keep this information current but should you ever have more questions or your particular question is not listed here be sure to email us via our Contact Page.
August 20, 2017 – Question 6.A., May a homeschool child be enrolled in a public or private school after homeschooling for a time? has been updated! The FLOW CHART for this question has also been updated.
2017: We’re always reviewing and tweaking our FAQs to give parents the most current info regarding homeschooling in Nevada. For the upcoming 2017-18 school year we’ve answered questions about how to get started homeschooling; submitting the NOI; enrolling a child in a public school after homeschooling (we have a great “flow chart” on this topic); participating in public school classes, activities, and sports; and standardized testing for homeschoolers to name a few. After answering these questions we go back and update the FAQs and our other pages to make sure homeschool families always have the most current information and internet links available.
2016: Recently a question on Facebook was asked as to whether Nevada homeschoolers are eligible to receive the Millennium Scholarship… the answer is YES, they are. However, when the mom contacted the Millennium Scholarship Office for more information she received conflicting information on what needs to be submitted with the application. We have updated the information in our FAQs; see Section 4, the last question for current info as of June, 2016.
NOTE: New numbering of laws affecting NV Homeschooling went into effect June of 2016. The old homeschool laws NRS 392.700 and NRS 392.705 are now NRS 388D.010-070. However, the wording contained in the homeschool laws has remained EXACTLY the same, only the legal reference numbers have changed.
