In Wyoming, Homeschooling is defined by State Statute 21-4-101(a)(v):  “A home-based educational program means a program of educational instruction provided to a child by the child’s parent or legal guardian or by a person designated by the parent or legal guardian. An instructional program provided to more than one (1) family unit does not constitute a home-based educational program.”

A home-based educational program must meet the requirements of a Basic Academic Educational Program, which is defined in State Statute 21-4-101(a)(vi). It’s the responsibility of every person administering a home-based educational program to meet the following mandates:

  • You can provide a letter of intent or complete the homeschool registration form provided by the district
  • Submit curriculum to the local board of trustees each year
    • This can be done by providing a summary of your curriculum to your local school district office
    • The curriculum must show that the program meets the basic educational requirements
    • Required subjects are Reading, Writing, Literature, Math, Science, History, and Civics
  • Failure to submit a curriculum showing compliance is evidence that the home-based educational program does not meet the requirements of this article.
