Home Schooling

Parents, guardians and legal custodians who have elected to homeschool their children may access Heartland AEA services on the same basis as a teacher under the guidelines outlined in the Iowa Code 299A and Iowa Rules Chapter 31.

Heartland AEA:

  • ensures that parents/guardians receive the annual competent private instruction notification from each district, 
  • provides special education services for students on an IEP and
  • administers standardized testing services for homeschooled children.
