Where should Ohio homeschoolers send Home Education Notification Forms?

Using the District-Created Form
You do not have to use a form of any sort for notification. The manner in which you present the notification information is entirely up to you. Just be sure all required information is provided. It is suggested that parents, under no circumstances, use the forms provided by their districts since these are likely to contain word changes that alter the regulations in whole or in part. Provide your information on either the "state-generated" form which you may obtain from any homeschooling group, advocate, Ohio homeschooling website, or provide the required information in the form of a letter. Using a district-generated form merely perpetuates the errors, raises the bar of expectation for every other homeschooler and cedes authority to the district to which it is not entitled.
Work Permits
The Department of Commerce (through legislation passed recently) has made the process for minor work permits more standardized. The forms can now be printed off their website and simply turned into the school district in which you reside.
