The Bedford School Committee recognizes the right of parents/guardians to educate their children outside of a school setting as provided by General Laws Chapter 76, Section 1.

The law requires, however, that a child being educated outside of school must also be instructed in a manner approved, in advance, by the Superintendent or designee or the School Committee.

To request homeschooling for your child(ren), please review the Home Education Policy then submit the Home Education Plan Proposal to our Assistant Superintendnet, Dr. Tricia Clifford, for reivew and approval. Please submit the forms to Erin Crowley, Executive Assistant, via e-mail or by mailing the forms to 97 McMahon Road, Bedford, Ma 01730.
