- CERTIFIED TUTOR STATUTE.
This section is found in the compulsory attendance law Section 22.1-254(A) of the Virginia Code and gives the option of having “…such child taught by a tutor or teacher of qualifications prescribed by the Board of Education and approved by the division superintendent…”
Under this section, if a parent is certified in Virginia, he need only notify the local superintendent that they are tutoring their child and send with the letter a copy of teacher certification. There are no further requirements to meet. You do not have to turn in test scores or send in yearly notification. Members of HSLDA can obtain, through them, a sample letter. We recommend you join HSLDA to use this option as school systems may fight your right to do so, or attempt to impose further requirements.
