RCW 28A.225 defines instruction as home-based if it consists of planned and supervised instructional and related educational activities including curriculum and instruction in the basic skills of occupational education, science, mathematics, language, social studies, history, health, reading, writing, spelling, and the development of an appreciation of art and music.  Total annual program hours are as follows:

  • Kindergarten: At least a total of 1,000 hours
  • Grades 1 through 12: An annual average total of 1,080 hours

RCW 28A.200 recognizes that all decisions (except for matters specifically referred to in RCW 28A. 225) relating to philosophy or doctrine; selection of books, teaching materials and curriculum; and methods, timing, and place in the provision or evaluation of home-based instruction shall be the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

Therefore, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide the materials and equipment necessary to meet the planned objectives for home-based instruction and to comply with state law.
