DC Code § 38-202 states that the only requirements which presently apply to home schools are that each teacher who gives private instruction, shall, in accordance with the rules adopted by the Board, pursuant to subchapter I of chapter 15 of title 1, report to the Board the name, address, sex, and date of birth of each minor who resides permanently or temporarily in the District, who transfers between schools, or who enrolls in or withdraws from his or her school. A parent who elects home instruction in lieu of school attendance must notify the superintendent annually each August of intent to do so for the coming school year.
