Alaska Statute, AS 14.30.365, also called the ”Home School Law” goes into effect on July 1, 2013. This law will permit students who are enrolled in “alternative education programs” and accredited home schools as defined under AS 14.30.365, and who are otherwise eligible to participate in high school interscholastic activities, to select a “school of eligibility” within a public school district or private or religious school. A recent amendment clarified that home schools must be located in Alaska although not exclusively.

The following suggestions and guidelines have been developed to aid school administrators/parents/students in fully implementing the “letter and the spirit” of the law. For further clarification contact ASAA at 907-563-3723 or your school administration.
