I was wondering what other alternatives does a parent have if the school district denies the child Homeschooling?  Is there any free programs out there?

 What state are you in? No public school can tell you you can't homeschool your child in the United States of America.

See if your state has K12. Though the above poster is right. A B&M school district cannot say you can't homeschool. Look up your states homeschooling laws.

K12 is public school done in the home online. Which is what we do.

The others are correct. A school cannot deny you the right to homeschool.

More details... how did the district deny you homeschooling? Or do you mean you weren't approved for the state funded online school?

Unless you don't meet the requirements set forth by your state laws the school district cannot deny letting you homeschool your child. Free programs would be through the public school system, which is not the same thing as homeschooling.

The lady said she would have to evaluate my son first before she can start the homeschooling process, but I was wondering if  there were other options in case she says no.

There is no state that has an evaluation of the child before homeschooling can start. What state are you in? It doesn't sound like you are looking at homeschooling at all, but as some type of in home public school service.

This, totally....this doesn't sound normal.
Been homeschooling and an advocate for 18 years, many states, never heard of getting. "Permission" to homeschool. This is against your rights.
