Anyone from NY? (IHIP Question)

...that can share a sample of acceptable IHIP info? This is the first year that I am homeschooling. I have the IHIP form but I just need to know how much detail I must provide to my school district. I understand that I need to provide the subject and the curriculum textbooks. Do I also need to list, in detail, exactly what is in each curriculum? For instance, this blog shows a sample of an IHIP:

Do I need to include that much detail if I'm providing the names and volumes of the books, and materials that I'm using?

You don't have to provide a list of what's in your curriculum or a list of curriculum textbooks - that's just one option.  A general plan of instruction tends to be the easier way to do it because then your quarterlies can be brief.  I prefer more info in the IHIP (once a year) than in the quarterlies (4x a year).  Book titles tell the superintendent nothing.  Your quarterlies will have to be so detailed.

I see, so the more info that I provide on the IHIP, the less I would need to put on for the quarterlies. Thanks for the tip!

Personally I just list my books in my ihip, and for a subject without a book like gym, I simply say "participating in...but not limited to..." I always keep it very basic. For my quarterlies, I go to the table of contents and type four or so items that we covered. Like; for NY history "program included; citizenship, volunteering, making your voice heard, and reasons to be proud to be a New Yorker." I keep it all simple, if they need more info they will ask. But in nine years, they haven't. They harp on me for other stuff, like my personal info or my phone number - which I won't give them. Good luck!
