It depends on which state you are in. For us, in Michigan, the only regulation is that you either file with the school district that you are homeschooling for religious purposes, or simply because you want to. You have to let them know so they don't report you for truancy when your kids don't show up, but you do not need to report to them in any other way shape or form. Other states are stricter, requiring regular reporting, attendance and accountability for parents. The best thing to do is contact your state board of education and find out your own state's requirements.

go to and look up the laws for homeschooling in your state. This will give you direction on what steps to take next.

However, beware that he only way to be certain of your schools homeschooling laws (which change) is with your state board of education. HSLDA even has a disclaimer on their website that their information may not be current.

You need to notify the public school system that you will be homeschooling, then you just have to get a cirriculum and get your work. There are homeschool support systems for moms that homeschool. Just look them up on the internet in the state you live in.
