Notice of Intent Acknowledgment

Q.  I sent in my NOI (Notice of Intent) and haven’t had a response from the superintendent. How long does it normally take to get a response, and what do I do if I don’t get one?

A. The law does not require a superintendent to respond to a Notice of Intent (NOI). However, many superintendents do respond with a letter acknowledging receipt of your NOI. If you have fulfilled the requirements of §22.1-254.1, and have notified the superintendent as the law requires, you may begin homeschooling with or without a response from the superintendent.

This is a good reason to send your NOI “return receipt requested.” By sending the NOI this way, you will know the superintendent has received your notice, even if you do not get a notice of intent acknowledgement.
