Quoting Leissaintexas:Im not sure I understand what you're asking. Use your state for what? Who are we talking about?
Not sure if anyone would actually know, unless people got nosy and started asking questions. If you can prove that you are only there a few months then it should be no problem. As for me, being military, I'd love to use AZ as my homeschool laws, since that is our home of reference. Since we don't actually live there and are stationed else where, we have to use the state we are living in. If I didn't use an association and people started asking questions about why my daughter isn't in school, I could be in trouble because the base will not say that we are using our home of reference for homeschool laws.
I'm just curious how they would know. I have a friend who HS her daughter here in NC. She was asking me how would they know if I were to use NC vs whatever state we may be living in for a short period of time.
No one would know unless you cross paths with some nosy people. If your child has never been registered in public school or registered as homeschooled in the state you will be living temporarily there would be no record of your child there. To be completely compliant I would consider contacting hslda.org so you aware of your rights and responsibilities.
From what I was told (my husband is military) we can use our home of record laws for homeschooling if we want. I don't though, this is our first full year and I am using the states that we reside in.
Probably not.. However if they found out it could mean problems.. Just saying!
I would use the requirements of the stricter state! Just to be safe!
