I'm thinking about Homeschooling: where do I begin?
On the left side of this screen are our Public Pages - begin by clicking on the popout menu: New To Homeschooling. Read the first three links, Where Do I Begin? Registering with the LEA, Registering with a CRS. Start there and you will have a better idea how to proceed. One big difference between homeschooling and public/private schooling: YOU are in charge of your child's education. You MUST make the effort and take the time to do some research and gain a basic understanding of the law and the methods to homeschool legally. After that, you get to decide what, when, and how your child pursues his studies.
