    I just asked around in homeschool community. I would not ask the district. It just has to be any licensed teacher. IME a lot of homeschooling moms are ex teachers who are happy to evaluate. Choose an evaluator who meshes with your style. Do you know what part of PA you may be moving to? 

    I have joined a couple of PA homeschool FB pages per the suggestion on this thread. I’m definitely getting good info there.

    We are considering Mechanicsburg/Hershey/York. Don’t really know yet as we’ve never been.  My hubby’s job will be in York so anything with 30-40 min commute time or shorter is ideal.

  3. @Kristin0713.  Thank you for that info.  I use to live in NJ when I had my first child.  There began my homeschooling adventures as I met a homeschool family in NY who opened my eyes to homeschooling.  If we moved to NJ, we would come full circle. 😂 

    Unfortunately, we are relocating from Tx where we’ve been for the last 14 years due to my husbands job.

  4. My family is relocating to the York area or  northern MD during the summer.  I currently live in Texas where homeschool laws are simple.  My children have never ever entered the school system.  I’m concerned that I may miss something, register late, not teach all the subjects or not do something to the evaluators liking and have truancy all over my case.  I have 5 kiddos to boot and it seems like an awful lot of work for each of them.

    Im more inclined to move to Maryland because of this. However, because we are not familiar with either area, the plan is to rent near York/Harrisburg for a while then figure out where we really want to be.  Right now, I’m making homeschool plans to be in PA for atleast the first year.  

    Please give me insight into the laws and what I need to do to make sure I’m compliant. For ex, when do I need to submit affidavits? What if we are staying in a hotel for the first month or so? What if we end up moving after the school year began? What if we move before it ends?  I know, so many variables!

    Would also like info on co-ops in the area, a la carte Co-op high school classes, homeschool youth sports and dance, foreign language, field trips.

    Any insight would be much appreciated!
