My stepsons mom called me a little while ago asking me about homeschooling. I told her what I could and told her I would try to get as much information as I could find together for her so "if" she decides to go ahead with homeschooling, then she would have information and resources on it. They have been having trouble with his school for a few years now and I think they have just about had it with everything now.
I know the laws in missouri are leinient as far as what is required for the curriculum... 1000 hours total, 600 on the core curriculum of reading, math, social studies, science and language arts. 400 of those need to be at the homeschool location. She would also need to keep a journal on their hours of what they did each day and samples of his work. This is all I know right now.
I want to know if she needs to write out a letter of intent? I read something on the hslda website about a school trying to get a family to fill one out and upon hslda's advice were told to not give the school a letter of intent. (I live in texas, but am visiting up here for a few months but I had to write out a letter of intent for my kids) Would they still be required to write a letter of intent for the current school or no? It was confusing the way it was written about this, I don't know if they are just saying don't fill out the schools form or to not write a letter of intent at all. I would hate for truancy charges be brought on them.
If anyone knows what legally they need to do to homeschool him I would be greatful. TIA
