liamtaylorsmom Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 There is a long backstory, but I'm not sure that applies. The short story is that Liam is being pulled from the local public school on Monday and I will homeschool for the foreseeable future. DH is deployed and I will be travelling to NC to visit with family for a few months. The school just called to confirm that Monday is his last day (tried to convince me to public school him in NC) and then said if I'm homeschooling, I need to fill out some forms. She then said that if he does return to the public school this year (a slight possibility) I would need to track his grades and report all that to the district. I reminded her that in TX there is no need to report since I'm considered a private school and she said that for this district, I would need to. I'm not saying she's wrong but I'm confused on why this is if the state doesn't require me to do anything. I'm not planning right now on keeping formal grades or anything since this is 2nd grade, our first year of homeschooling, and we're dealing with our fourth deployment and probably overseas move in the spring. I'm also not really planning on returning to the school but the Army has left some things up in the air with us and I would like my options kept open. Do I need to go ahead and start grading/reporting/tracking/etc.? ***also, as a side note: while DH is deployed, I plan to stay with my parents in NC for anywhere from 2 - 4 months. Our residency is still here. Do any military families know if, in this instance, I would need to follow NC's rules due to the length of time that I will be there? Thanks in advance. I'm VERY curious to see this paperwork she's sending home. Ugh! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
