In accordance with state law, we are required to ensure that all school-age children living within the boundaries of the Minnetonka Public School District are being educated. Our primary role is to be certain that all home schools comply with state law and to provide the necessary information and forms to each home school for compliance.
For specific home school questions and to check out requirements, visit the Minnesota Department of Education website.
