Home Schooling in WCS and Tennessee

Williamson County Schools wants to make parents of homeschooled students aware of an important state law that could affect them. According to Tennessee Law, homeschooled students who are not affiliated with a homeschool agency such as a Category IV church-related school must register their child with the school district.

For instance, a mom or dad who teaches their child at home is required to register with Williamson County Schools; whereas a parent who registers their child with a state-approved umbrella organization or a church-related program is not.

Please submit via email all Homeschool questions and paperwork.
