This post is part of a series titled, “Homeschool Q&A.” The series features questions we’ve received from parents on a variety of topicsand the answers!

Q. We are moving out of state in early spring. Do I still need to test my children and submit anything to the county, or do I just move and notify my new state?

If you are living in another state prior to August 1, the law does not require you to test and submit the scores to Virginia. When ready to move, some, as a courtesy, will notify their superintendent they are moving to another state. This can be done by phone or letter.

Homeschool laws differ in each state, so when you have established another residence in a new state, you will comply with their homeschool laws.
