Homeschooling Laws in Pennsylvania

A homeschool family in Pennsylvania is suing over the restrictiveness of Pennsylvania homeschool law that ultimately gives the local public school superintendent the authority over the curricula. The article is here:

My only question:
Does the state also require the Amish to submit curricula to the local superintendent?

Why do I ask this?
The Amish have their own curricula and typically educate in the classroom through the functional equivalent of the 6th grade. Any other education is up to the Amish parents.
