First google homeschooling laws in(your state) many suggest the HSLDA website forthe laws, but they have been wrong before. Every state is different - some require you to register with just a letter to the superintendent stating your intent to he, others require you to get the BoE approval of your curriculum, and still others require nothing at all. Curriculum is a big decision, but again can be limited by the state you are in.

You don't have to wait until the school year is over. Get all your ducks in a row like the other ladies said, and bring her home. By this time next year she will be ahead. Family life will be too.

Good advice given by others.  Knowing your State Laws is the first step.  Your State Home School Association  provides you resources to walk you through each step.  There are other things to know after that ( methods used by home educators and their resources, testing resources required by some states, grade level requirements,  your child's learning style).  The following article provides that information and more:
