Pulling my son out of public school soon; parent teacher conference coming up (crossposted with other groups)
I want to hear advice and opinion.... I'm currently homeschooling my Kindergartner. She's not yet 5, so I haven't yet had to deal with Letters of Intent and such for her. However, my 2nd grade son is still in public school. My husband and I had originally decided that he would continue attending until Christmas break. But I really just want to pull him out ASAP. My husband is worried that I'm not ready to start homeschooling him too. I technically have enough materials for us to start...and I'm in the process of searching for and buying the curriculum materials I want for him. So, I want to go ahead and pull him out really soon. Like, part of me wants to show up at Parent/Teacher Conference on Friday and let them know that he won't be back the following week. Does that sound like a recipe for disaster? Or like a good idea? Technically, this is also an IEP meeting. My son has had an IEP for speech, but the things they are focusing on in speech right now are ridiculous. (For example, the 'th' sound when he has one missing and one loose front tooth...) I don't plan on keeping him in any of their services after this point, even if we weren't going to be homeschooling. So at this meeting will be his regular teacher, his speech teacher, and the principle.
Do people typically tell the teacher? Or just the Superintendent? If I do this, I will plan to submit the necessary materials at the Superintendent's office prior to the meeting.
Of course, I have to convince my husband that I'm ready, and get him on board with this happening so suddenly.
Please, any tips or advice would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance!
