Making a Homeschooling Contract

  • What is a Homeschooling Contract?

    If you are a homeschool teacher, you can make and sign Homeschooling Contracts to protect your interests when offering instruction to a parent. This document can be used to hire a homeschool teacher for a single student, or it can be used by a learning pod made up of multiple families. Within the contract, you can define the learning schedule and payment terms among other details . When drafted properly, this essential contract allows you to make your teaching arrangement legally-binding, and it may help to limit disputes by ensuring that both signers are on the same page. Different from the generic templates that you might find on another site, every Homeschooling Agreement that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an attorney in our network can review the situation and take action if you need to demand payment or have any other issue.

  • Should homeschool teachers write Homeschool Contracts each time they are hired?

    Regardless of what type of private instruction you will provide, a Homeschooling Contract is recommended for every homeschool provider. The following benefits may help to persuade you:

    • There are no surprises about how long the agreement will last
    • Both parties know when billing will happen
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by the parent(s) and the hired teacher

    Without a Homeschooling Agreement, you might have to manage one or more of the following unwanted repercussions: unexpected changes, not being paid on time, unmet standards, vague expectations, and, unfortunately, barely any recourse when disputes arise.

  • How are Homeschooling Contracts structured?

    Before getting started, you might want to prepare the following information for the Homeschooling Contract:

    • Name and address of the parent
    • What tasks you are committed to performing
    • How long the homeschool instruction will last
    • What fees will be charged and when

    As you may expect for an agreement like this, your Homeschooling Contract will also include the typical legal language regarding the independent work relationship, the protection of confidential information, restitution for losses, and dispute resolution methods. During the process of making your agreement, you'll also have the ability to select the state under which it will be governed. Using the document tool, you have the ability to make additional custom modifications, if necessary.

  • What might it traditionally cost for a lawyer to draft a homeschool contract template?

    The cost of hiring a legal provider could add up to anywhere between hundreds of dollars to thousands, depending on the complexity of the matter. You can fill out your own Homeschooling Contract for free with Rocket Lawyer. When you're ready to start, you can tap or click on the button that says "Make Document." If you'd like, you can also send your drafted document for legal review by an On Call attorney before signing it.

    If you have any particular questions or concerns about how to move forward, ask a lawyer. You might also like to check out our larger library of business legal documents.

  • Will I need to do anything else after writing a contract for homeschooling?

    In order to make this drafted document into a true legal contract, you and the parent need to sign it, electronically, by means of RocketSign®, or otherwise. Your client should get a copy of your final agreement. With a Rocket Lawyer membership, you also may save it in PDF format or as a Word file, print it, or copy it as necessary.

  • Will Rocket Lawyer check my Homeschooling Agreement before I sign?

    Depending on whom you ask, some lawyers may not even agree to review your document if they did not write it. An easier approach might be through the On Call network of attorneys. If you sign up for a Premium membership, you have the ability to ask for a contract review from an attorney with experience in business or pose other questions related to your Homeschooling Agreement. As always, we're here for you.
