DECLARATION OF INTENT (Submit on or before September 1st each year)
DECLARATION IS YOUR CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE; You will NEED it for driver’s license and work permits. SEE INFORMATION AS TO DRIVER’S LICENSE AND WORK PERMITS AT THE BOTTOM.
Effective July 1, 2013, Georgia law indicates you are NO longer required to submit an Attendance Form to the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE).
*Students not with accreditation should keep a record.
*Students Enrolled with Trinity Center will use the NEW Trinity Center Monthly Attendance/Time Sheet for their records and for the accreditation requirement. See Link under Trinity Center.
Declarations of Intent (DOI) is the ONLY document that must be submitted to the GaDOE each year. This form should be submitted electronically using the GaDOE website. Electronic submissions automatically provide the parent with a 36 unique character parental signature. Georgia law dictates that the DOI must be submitted by the parent or guardian only. The GaDOE will not accept third party submissions. If possible, submission of the DOI should be electronically, however, mailing, emailing or faxing is acceptable. Please note when mailing, emailing, or faxing, it may take several weeks to input your DOI into our files.

Driving Permit or License
To obtain a driving permit or license, a copy of the electronically submitted Declaration of Intent to the GaDOE website with a 36 unique character digital parent signature is all that is needed.
The GaDOE no longer issues Certificate of Attendance. Your DOI with the 36 unique characters on the parental signature line is the official document of the Georgia Home Study Program. This document should be used to obtain Driver’s license/permits, work permits, post-secondary admission, military enlistment, and for all other entities that require proof of educational enrollment.
