Home schooling is an alternative education option in Oregon. Parents who choose to home school their children must register at their local Education Service District (ESD).

2) OHEN: The OHEN homepage has links to homeschooling news and laws, among many other resources:

OHEN is an inclusive, statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting all of Oregon’s homeschooling families. OHEN supports the right of all homeschoolers to educate their children with as little government intervention as possible. Celebrating the diversity within our homeschooling community, OHEN welcomes any person without regard to educational philosophy, religion, creed, race, color, gender, or ethnic or national origin.”
