Do North Carolina home-schooled students receive any state/county funding?

Home schools are considered private schools in North Carolina and therefore do not receive public funding.

According to the North Carolinians for Home Education website, parents who choose to home-school their children foot the bill. The private, volunteer organization estimates curriculum costs from $100 to $700 per year per student.

Local districts also do not receive federal or state funding for a student who is homeschooled and not enrolled in the district.

The funding a district receives on the federal and state level varies based on each individual student, taking into account factors such as socioeconomic status, learning issues and county size and wealth. For grades K-3, local education agencies receive a combination of federal and local funds ranging from $5,103 for students with no additional needs to $16,719 for students with multiple needs.


What is Brunswick County Schools’ budget, and how much of that goes to charter schools?

Is there an itemized list of how Brunswick schools spends its budget?
