So you’ve decided to homeschool! Now what?

So You’ve Decided to Homeschool! Now what? D.Bradley Here is some direction for those of you who have decided to home educate, but you don’t know where to start. 1. Start with your kids This is going to be a boring and fruitless endeavor if you don’t have any kids to educate. If you do, take a look at them.   Not one of those motherly bruise-inventories or an investigation into what they’ve been eating by inspecting the corners of their mouths, but a good, quiet observation of them.   Think about what they’re like, what their gifts and talents are, what they enjoy, what they don’t.   Who are they?   (We know you’ve asked this question of yourself before, like after the deafening crash at the supermarket or after you found the harmonica-shaped hole in the living room wall, but we don’t mean it that way now.)   Who is this little person? Fact: every child is different, and no single approach is best for all kids. But that’s what’s great about homeschooling.   I

Letter of Notification of Your Private Homeschool

The time of year will be quickly approaching to notify your school district of your private school!  This is the first step in creating an official private school in your home.  We receive many questions about this step, and encourage you to read the following information, including eight of the most common questions with answers.

Declaration of Participation Forms for Title II, III, and IDEA-B

Kentucky is a private school state, meaning there are no "homeschool" laws on the books! Yes, you read that right! Pioneer homeschool leaders were wise to think ahead 25 years ago when the case of private church schools and homeschooling arose. Hang in here with me for just a minute and you will understand the connection between this statement and the forms. Your homeschool is a private school that operates in your home, the exact same as the local parochial or private church schools. Have you heard the phrase, "There is strength in numbers", or "A three cord strand cannot be broken"? We fall under private school laws. Of course, the 4th amendment gives us right to privacy in our home (yea!). Many people do not understand this about our Kentucky laws, and this was the perfect opportunity to interject. Now about the forms, federal law requires that the state send every (yep, you guessed it) private school these forms; if they do not get a response t
