Families who determine home schooling is best for their child must complete the Non-accredited, Nonpublic School Full Report, or the Letter of Intent to Continue Homeschooling, and submit it to Mankato Area Public Schools by October 1.
- For first-time home schooled students, Pupil Immunization Record and Testing Information are required when submitting your Non-accredited, Nonpublic School Full Report.
- For home school students previously reported to the District please submit a Letter of Intent to Continue Homeschooling.
- Families who need the Student Report for Aids to Nonpublic Students, should contact Judi Smith in the business office at 507-207-4007.
