Materials: Public schools do not have to furnish any materials for the purpose of curriculum or testing to homeschoolers in this state. Parents can choose their own texts and curriculums.
Re-admittance to Public School: Georgia law specifies that homeschoolers who return to public school must undergo review of performance for one or more grading periods or have their standardized testing scores used to qualify their course credits taken in a home study program. They may test to reenter and, once registered, they have to follow all guidelines for completion at the secondary level once back in public school.
A fine of up to $100.00 for breaking homeschool law is in effect in Georgia, classifiable as a misdemeanor charge in the jurisdiction of juvenile court.
Graduation: Stipulations for graduating from homeschool in Georgia are not listed publicly. Contact a local superintendent or the Georgia Department of Education for thorough information.
Financial Aid: Georgia does not publicly discuss financial aid options for homeschool parents leading to the assumption that the state does not assist in homeschooling at any level.
Special Education: The process of educating an exceptional child in a home study program is not available publicly. Inquire at the local education agency of the public school district nearest to your home for advice on providing a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment for students with special needs.
