The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) developed a web-based system to efficiently comply with the new homeschool requirements. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to use the web-based system to submit their homeschool Declaration of Intent and attendance records as doing so will save time and resources for both the parent/guardian and the GaDOE. The GaDOE web-based system is located on the GaDOE homeschool webpage at http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Pages/Home-Schools.aspx. Additional information about homeschooling and how to submit homeschool documentation is available on the homeschool webpage. Please be advised that the GaDOE web-based system is not affiliated with any vendor offering services to homeschool parents/guardians.
For parents/guardians who do not wish to utilize the web-based system, the GaDOE will also allow paper submittal of homeschool documentation. Parents/guardians may submit their homeschool documentation via mail or fax to the GaDOE at the contact information below:

The GaDOE will be responsible for issuing Certificates of Attendance for homeschool students that are eligible for a learner’s permit, driver’s license, work permit, or as needed for other purposes. Parents/guardians may request a Certificate of Attendance electronically using the web-based system or by contacting a GaDOE homeschool staff member.
