Affidavit of Intent to Homeschool
For each child to be homeschooled between the ages of 6 and 16, an Affidavit of Intent to Homeschool must be filed within 30 days of starting your homeschooling. Please mail the completed and notarized affidavit to the County School Superintendent for the county in which you live. Many counties have their own version of the affidavit, however, using a specific county form is not required by law.
It is suggested by AFHE (Arizona Families for Home Education) to use the form available on their website found here- AFFIDAVIT OF INTENT TO HOMESCHOOL.
