Home-based instruction must be provided by a parent who is instructing his or her children only. In addition, one of the following four requirements must be satisfied:
  1. The student is supervised by a certificated teacher. There must be a minimum of an average of one-hour contact per week with the student being supervised by the teacher.
  2. The parent has either earned 45 college level quarter credit hours or the equivalent in semester hours.
  3. The parent has completed a parent qualifying course in home-based instruction at a postsecondary institution or a vocational-technical institute. Information on specific parent qualifying courses is available on the WHO web site (www.washhomeschool.org).
  4. The parent has been deemed qualified by the superintendent of the district in which the student lives.
