      Carolyn,
      The statue that defines the rights of home-schoolers is NRS 392.070. It is freely available online. If anyone would like to read it, simply Google it. The additional comment I made about curriculum is on the district paperwork and is a part of the Elko County Intent to Home school packet. They are mainly concerned about getting kids back into the system after home schooling. It is available at the district offices across from the Great Basin College. The old county offices building. Please also mention that home schooled children are eligible to participate in classes, extra-curricular activities and sports that are within the child's school district. Mine participated in band and cross-country while at home. This is also where the curriculum comes in. NRS 392.070 section 3 speaks about the need to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the board of trustees that the child is qualified - I took this to mean that if you want to enroll your child in some sort of special education class or some such that they would need to ensure that your child met the eligibility requirements. There is a form that you can fill out and a waiver that you can obtain from the county offices that will allow your home school child to participate in sports and band and drama and such. It is also in the intent to home school packet. The packets are available on the card rack that is just inside the secretary's office door. There are other enrollment packets there as well, so look carefully. If they are not stocked up, ask for the forms. Just wanted to add that this packet is available online on the district website. Just look around, there is an intent to homeschool link and then it can be mailed in. Very easy!
      Nevada is a great state to live in for homeschoolers!
      Hope this has helped.
      Thanks,
