Required Records

It is important to keep accurate records of what you are doing. Your records will help keep you organized and aware of your children’s progress.  They will also be verification of your validity as a private homeschool should you ever be questioned. You want to be taken seriously not only for your own sake but for the sake of the entire homeschooling movement, so set up your school as professional as possible and teach with a professional attitude. Remember, you are an educator. Pay particular attention to items 5-7. Download HSLDA's PDF with complete directions on vaccination and medical records for homeschoolers under the new (2016) law.

The Private School Affidavit lists the records that are required to be kept by private schools (whether private school satellite programs [PSP] or private home-based schools). If your children are enrolled in a private PSP, the PSP will keep these records for you.

  1. Copy of Private School Affidavit.
  2. Attendance record or register for each child. Keep the record up to date.
  3. Course of study for each child each school year.
  4. A document listing your faculty (that is, you) and their qualifications to teach.
  5. Health immunization records. See Read Home School Legal Defense's updated document (November 2016) information on all vaccination and medical records.
  6. Report of Health Examination for School Entry or  (within 90 days of entering first grade) or signed waiver form PM171B.

The California Homeschool Manual: A guide to private home education in California contains more than 30 reproducible forms that can be used to meet some of the record requirements. Go to the CHEA Bookstore to order your copy.
