My state requires 180 but my goal is 200. I'm curious how many days you plan to have lessons this year.

 We plan 215 this year.  We had 212 last year, so I think we can do it. :-)

We are not required to have a set amount of days, but we try to learn something new every single day.

We probably have close to 230 days. We don't follow the ps calendar closely. We only use two major holidays from the whole year. Other than that, we school. Although most people aren't aware that we are still schooling as it doesn't look like schooling to the general populace.

Not sure yet.  This is our first year and we are not even required by law to be in school yet.  I'm just going to se if she can handle about 2 hrs a day 5 days a week.  She's nearly 4.

We are required to keep 1000 hours.  Once we hit that, it's whatever we feel like from there.

We are req'd 180 too. That's all I keep track of, with lesson plans and attendance, but I usually don't count family vacations or field trip days in that 180, so closer to 200 I'd say.

We dont have a set amount....but I try for 5 days a week off wrestling season and 4 during wrestling season.We do 2 hrs a day structured, 1 hr child led, and 1 hr pe on the off season, and then we do 2.5 hrs structured 2 hrs child led and 2hrs pe during the wrestling season. Also during the off season we do M-F and on season we do M-Th and Sun. Since his tournaments are on saturdays having friday off leaves him with less stress. We also find it easier to travel and have an additional day to calm b4 a big tourny.

We are required 180.  I am not sure how many we will actually do.

I only have 144 days scheduled - 4 days a week and 36 weeks.  We don't have any attendance requirements in our state.  I do have an art class arranged for that 5th day every week, but that doesn't feel like it counts as a school day.
