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. If my son will be 18 in June, do I need to file a Notice of Intent in August? If not, should I notify the superintendent? And will we be required by law to provide testing scores for this past school year?

A. No, the law does not require you to submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) for the coming year because your son will be 18 years old prior to the August 15 NOI filing deadline. Neither are you required to send in testing results by August 1 of this year. When your son becomes 18, he will no longer be under the compulsory school attendance laws of Virginia.

The law does not require you to notify the superintendent that your child is no longer of compulsory school age.

    Thank you for this post! One of our sons turns 18 this August, and one son turns 18 next May. I was wondering about this question. This was VERY helpful!
