Home Instruction

Home Instruction Information

Parents of students ages 5 – 18 (include compulsory attendance document) may choose to educate their child at home, rather then enrolling them in a traditional public or private school. Talbot County Public Schools supports Home Instruction in accordance with the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 13A.10.01

If you are registering your child for an online program that does not have a physical building, i.e. a brick and mortar school, then your child will need to be registered for Home Instruction because you are a resident of Talbot County and your child is not registered in a public or private school.
