You should register your child with your local ESD within 10 days of the beginning of homeschooling, or within 10 days of withdrawing the child from public school. If you have been homeschooling in another state and just moved to Oregon, register within 10 days of arriving, if it is within the school year. (Children under age 6 by September 1 do not need to be registered.)

The following ESDs allow online registration. Online registration ensures your data is more accurate, gives you 24/7 access to your information, and allows you to print out your confirmation letter at your convenience. Register online in the following ESDs at

  • Clackamas ESD
  • Intermountain ESD (Baker, Morrow, Umatilla, Union counties)
