Homeschooling and Tennessee Laws

  • Giles County Schools wants to make parents of homeschooled students aware of an important state law that could affect them. According to Tennessee Law, homeschooled students who are not affilaited with a homeschool agency such as a Category IV church-related school must inform the district of your intent to independently homeschool. For instance, a mom or dad who teaches their child at home is required to inform the district of your intent to independely homeschool. A parent who is registered with a state-approved umbrella organization or a church-related program is not. If you do need to inform Giles County Schools of your intent to homeschool, Please contact Tommy Hunter at or 931-363-4558.
