Q. I received a letter from my superintendent with what he termed the “new forms.” One includes a place to list the subjects and then a blank for the “objectives” of each subject. Is this required?

A. The new law that goes into effect July 1, 2012, says parents must provide a “description of curriculum limited to a list of subjects to be studied during the coming year.” It clearly limits the description to a list of subjects. Simply list all the subjects you plan to teach for each child and submit it with the Notice of Intent.

The law does not require you to use a superintendent’s form or any form at all. You can write a letter if you prefer. I suggest you use the Notice of Intent form on HEAV’s website that includes only the information required by the Virginia homeschool law.

Be sure to wait until July 1 to send in your curriculum description with your Notice of Intent.

    You have to wait until July 1 to do the new forms which will list only the subjects. Too early yet as they don’t even know at our office about the new law.

    I was wondering if the NOI form will change since a new law will take place on July 1st, and if so will you provide a copy of the new form to print out ? Thank you
