Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please use this site to access information pertaining to Home Instruction. If you plan to home school or continue to home school your child, please submit a letter of intent and a completed Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP) each year. Forms for IHIPs and quarterly reports can be found under the Resource tab. If you wish to have copies mailed to you directly, please contact my office at 363-2550 Ext. 2014.

Under section 100.10 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, the letter of intent should be submitted to my attention by July 1 of each year. The Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP) should be submitted by August 15 of each year. If you intend to seek special education services from the Oneida City School District, a letter of request should be submitted to the Committee on Special Education (CSE) chairperson, Danielle Mullen, by July 1 for the upcoming school year. Please contact the Special Education Office at 363-2550 Ext. 2012 if you have specific questions regarding special education services as they pertain to home instruction.

Your anticipated promptness in submitting all reports to my office throughout the academic year is appreciated.


Stacey Tice, Ph.D.,
Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment
