debbiec Posted June 18, 2009 Share Posted June 18, 2009 (edited) We are seriously considering a move to Texas at some near point in time and I have spent the day looking at the THSC site and am trying to make sense of the homeschool laws in Texas. (I'm in TN currently) So, let me understand this correctly: You don't have to register with anyone to homeschool? You just move into the state and pretty much do whatever you want? No umbrella, no record keeper, no curriculum lists, no one to verify your "credits" for graduation, etc....? It's just the "honor" system and you issue a diploma that the state recognizes as any diploma from a private school? It's that simple? :001_huh: Just wondering ~ Also, I'm having trouble finding tutorials in Texas. Are they just not as popular there? Maybe it's just the area I'm looking at. Maybe they are just not on-line and I'll need to wait to get there to figure that part out. And, I understand that homeschool participation in public school classes/sports/extras is left up to the individual school districts (it's a state decision here). Do many school districts do this? I'm coming in with a 10th grader and we are already set up with mostly on line classes with Veritas....but we like math and science local at least. We most likely won't be there until next summer (the kids and I anyway, hubby may go early if this works out) and he would be in 11th by then, in which we would probably look to sign up for duel enrollment. So, as you see, I'm not really a homeschooler, but more of an education manager because I farm out just about everything for high school. ;) Thanks ~ Debbie in TN Edited June 18, 2009 by debbiec Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
