Colorado Notice of Intent To Homeschool

Sample Notice of Intent to Homeschool in Colorado (NOI)

Colorado requires that homeschoolers file an Notice of Intent to homeschool (NOI) once a year. The NOI is sometimes called a Letter of Intent to homeschool (LOI). There isn’t an actual ‘official form’ to fill out. It’s just a note. I made you free sample template to use.

The Colorado Home School Statute requires the following information on your NOI/LOI.

* Your child’s first and last name
* The child’s age — (NOT their grade level)
* Home/primary address
* The number of hours your child will be homeschooling this year
* Where you intend submit your child’s standardized test or evaluation results (this only applies if this is a testing or evaluation year)
* Signature of the primary home school parent(s) or guardian(s)

If you’re homeschooling more than one child, you can list them all on the same form, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I always advise filling out a separate NOI for each kiddo. I cannot imagine (and don’t trust) a government agency to copy one piece of paper and then make sure a copy gets placed in every child’s file. Better safe than a truancy officer at your door, I always say.
