I posted a few days ago about how I was impatient for school to end so that our homeschooling could finally begin? We were planning on letting the girls finish out kindergarten at their public school and then homeschool them for first grade (school year 2014-2015).
One of the reasons we are planning on homeschooling them is because they are being bullied pretty regularly at school. Today one of the girls came home with more bullying stories and DH just lost it. He has had enough and asked me to figure out a way to pull them early.
They only have three more weeks and I was hoping to wait it out to avoid upsetting the school district or drawing unwanted attention to us...but he is adamant that I look into the possibility of pulling them out by the end of this week.
We live in New York state and in (I've heard) a particularly anti-homeschooling district.
I know the steps to take to homeschool for the beginning of the year...but I am a bit unsure how to go about doing it at the very end of the year...
Based on the NY regulations if I pull them after the start of the school year then I must notify the school district within 14 days of our homeschool start date.
But it doesn't specific anything else in relation to middle of the year/end of the year homeschooling...would I just follow the full year steps? If that's the case I fear I'd set us up for failure considering there is no way I could accumulate 900+ hours of instruct in two weeks and 180 days of instruction....lol
I will probably post for help in our locate homeschooling facebook group...but I figured I'd post in here as well :)
Ugh. I hope I'm making sense.
What would you do?? Wait it out for three more weeks or pull them and risk upsetting the authorities? Lol
