Today is the last day to file a Private School Affidavit in California. You can find detailed information on how to file the Private School Affidavit here: http://www.hslda.org/hs/state/ca/affidavit/AffidavitInstructions.asp
California’s compulsory attendance laws only require that children be enrolled by their 6th birthday in the year in which they turn 6 on or before December 2 (i.e., a child who turns 6 on December 3, 2009, does not need to be formally enrolled in school until September of 2010).
DO NOT FILE the Private School Affidavit for children under the age of 5 as that may be perceived as operating a preschool program which Social Services and Community Care Licensing has jurisdiction over instead.
