I am in Idaho where no reporting is required. If you are in an "easy" state, do you still track days and field trips and such "just in case"

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. :)

We live in ohio and it's pretty easy, but I still track days and write everything down.

I'm in Michigan. I don't have to do a thing.
No testing, no asking permission, no records or reporting to anyone.

The only thing is it has to be done by a parent.

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.
