When do I have to register?
You must register with the county school superintendent in the county in which you live within 30 (thirty) days from the time the child begins attending home school.
How do I register?
Simply complete an Affidavit of Intent form and submit it with a photocopy of the child's certified birth certificate. This form is available on our website or by calling (928) 329-2245 and requesting one be mailed to you.
What do I do if I move?
If you remain in Yuma County, you will need to submit a change of information form indicating the new address. If you move out of Yuma County, you will need to submit a withdrawal form so your record of home schooling in this county may be removed. (These two items are located on the same form.)
Are the records kept confidential?
Yes. Any requests for verification of registration must be done in writing by the parent or person who has custody of the child.
