Instead of filing the Private School Affidavit online, it is also possible to write a "Statement-in-Lieu" and sign and mail it to the California Department of Education. To write a statement-in-lieu, provide all information listed as required by the education code in sections 33190 and 33191. Be sure to provide ALL the information required.


Include at the end of your letter, "I hereby certify under penalty of perjury that the information I have provided for Section 33190(a) through (f) is true and correct and that I am in compliance with the provisions of Section 44237."

Sign your letter.

Keep a copy of the letter.


Send it by registered mail or in some form that gives you confirmation that it was received. Send it to:


California Department of Education
Title II Leadership Office, Room 4309
Private School Affidavit
1430 N Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
