The following article has many tips.  I would read the beginning about understanding State Laws, and then scroll down to the section about home education for High School that provides several links for you.

Hey Deb. I live just across the river from you in IL. I also pulled my 9th grader out of school at Easter last year after a rough move. I found that once we were both deschooled and relaxed, schooling has been so much easier. Good luck!

Welcome to the group, might I suggest deschooling for both of you to make the transition smother.
