Okay last question I promise..?
How exciting for you!
I am glad that everything is coming together for you.
The purpose behind makeing you RE-register is so that they keep track of you properly(current grade,age,address)–I know it seems like a pain but hey that our local geverment at work. But really, it does help them keep track and assures THEM that you are getting your education, not bouncing from Homeschool to Public to Private and back to Homeschool. It also helps them make sure that it is YOU and NOT your next door neighbor or Jane Black using your ID (identity theft is a big problem these days).
It’s a minor thing and takes a whole 5 minutes out of your day to do once a year. Be happy it’s not every month.
As for the posting that they need to your info to get credit for the school —-HOGWASH—schools DON”T get credit for Homeschoolers UNLESS they are in the Virtual Program or in an Umbrella School (it’s one of the reasons the public school system tries to keep parents from homeschooling their kids. They lose funding.)
Search the groups area with your county name or city name. If you don’t find anything there, search using your state name.
I am a member of several and they are always making announcements of activities, opportunities and offering advice. They also give web sites for interesting reading and free on line things for the kids.
Home school changed our family for the better.
File an application and a copy of the child’s birth certificate, with board of education, within 15 days after start of home school. Renew annually thereafter.
This means you need to file the application within 15 days of starting homeschooling. So, even if school is out for summer, if you start homeschooling now, you have just over two weeks to let the board of education know about it. Then you need to re-file every 12 months.
If you are following option 2:
Submit notification to the state department of education within the first 30 days of the school year. According to their “legal analysis”, if using option 2 AND you were enrolled in public school during the previous year, you need to notify the LOCAL school within 10 days of starting homeschooling. This notification must include:
student’s legal name
date of birth
This means you need to send a notice to the state dept. of education within 30 days after your local school district starts classes (i.e. if the local school starts on Aug. 27th, you have until Sept. 26th to submit your notice to the DoE). You also have to notify the LOCAL school within 10 days after starting homeschooling (under option 2).
On a personal note, I’d follow option 2.
