Filing the Private School Affidavit (October 1st – 15th)

Every year the Private School Affidavit (PSA) must be filed between October 1st and 15th. If you are enrolled in a Private School Satellite Program (PSP), the school’s administrator files one affidavit for the whole group.

The Private School Affidavit (PSA) is now available on the California Department of Education’s web site at www.cde.ca.gov/sp/ps/rq/affidavit.asp. Private schools, including single-family home-based schools (homeschoolers), can proceed to file their affidavits.

We have reviewed the affidavit in consultation with HSLDA and it appears to be essentially the same as last year. The only change was that question #16 was changed from relating to school classification to a question about special education services. This question can just be left at the default answer “no”.

To get answers to some frequently asked questions concerning filing, please read our article entitled “Filing the Private School Affidavit for 2013-2014 School Year” atwww.pheofca.org/FilingAnAffidavit.html.

We encourage you to join HSLDA or renew your membership today. HSLDA members who want step-by-step instructions on how to fill out the online PSA form, can visit HSLDA’s website at http://www.hslda.org/hs/state/ca/affidavit/AffidavitInstructions.asp. Any HSLDA members who have related legal questions should contact HSLDA atwww.hslda.org or (540) 338-5600.
