nope no way no how if I had to track ect I would prob try to find a loophole way out of it.
Technically, we are supposed to keep track (NC), but I've never known anyone who has actually been audited or anything. I keep a notebook with attendance, but I have been known to cheat (shhhh!). I feel like the number of days is less important than the work we cover.
I track days and have a lesson plan book that I keep. Any interesting work is kept in a folder for that year. I only do this as a way to track myself and make sure we are not slacking off. And yes, in case anyone wants to know what we've been doing.
Quoting chotovec82:I live in Indiana. Here you are only required to have your kids in "school" 180 days. I have heard that no one ever checks up on this. However, I have an attendence book that I put in their attendence and it also has a list of their classes and I write down what they did that day. I would rather be safe than sorry. JMO

Indiana here, too.
I have a lesson plan book I use for the whole year, which serves as my attendance book as well. When we aren't doing at home lessons (like we go to co-op all day 24 weeks a year), I still write "co-op" in that space. AT the end of the year I print out a few pictures of projects they did during the year and put them in sheet protectors in a binder. A very simple scrapbook, and include '180 days' on it somewhere. :)
Nope I didn't track nothing or have the kids take the required tests
I honestly don't know if we are supposed to track or do much of anything. I fibbed to the local school board (well, sort of--I told them that she was doing online with a private school, which is sort of true. It got us out of the need to report to them which is what I wanted. I am keeping track of all grades, progress reports and report cards. Each child will have a file with a sample from every subject in that file for each year.
Nope, never have in all my 20 yrs of home educating. I just have a set amount of work I want done and we do it.
Nope nope nope! I would much rather spend that time doing things with my kids!
