Utah Home Education Association
"Basic Goals of the UHEA
To encourage maintenance and improvement of our rights to educate our own children through support of good legislation, court decisions and policies established by public school administrators, and to oppose any limitation to these same rights.
To establish and maintain a diplomatic relationship with state and local school administration.
To strive to educate the public in general to the viability of home education.
To help families find educational resources that best meet their children's needs.
To encourage educational and social activities to help maintain family morale. However, UHEA is intended as a resource, not a provider of goods or services."
Utah State Office of Education
For parents who wish to home school their child, the State of Utah requires the parent to file an affadavit stating their intent to home school with their local school district. There is a Model Affidavit and Exemption Certificate located on this page, however we suggest contacting your local school district to find out what form they require.
