    Thanks Dottie. As Cym mentions elsewhere, even grandparents often donít understand the issue.

    Kriston, I am glad you figured out what you want to do. I say go for it, at least you know what you are getting into as opposed to me.

    Kimck, looks like lots of new hs on this board next year. Kriston will be old pro and give us all lectures wink

    Delbows, depends on the schedule? Unbelievable, yeah, who cares how much he knows frown

    Old, yes. Pro, no! wink

    It does seem like lots of people are at least seriously considering HSing for next year. Interesting...

    Loc: up in my head.......
    As I had mentioned, we have a meeting at school tomorrow for DD5. After much thought and family discussion, I am planning on asking them to allow her to attend school for specials only in first grade and re-assess for second. I hope they go for it because DD5 would still like to be at school for part of the time. From what another hs mom has told me, they are compelled legally to offer this option because of state regulations. I'm not sure about that, but I plan to ask nicely first, then research the legalitites of the situation if I have to.

    Can you do a quick web search, just so you're not walking in blind? I'd help you, but I'm not sure what state you're in. Try this site:

    http://homeschooling.gomilpitas.com/directory/Legalities.htm

    It's pretty comprehensive.

    I hope the meeting is friendly and productive and meets all your DD's needs. smile

    That sounds great if you can work it out 'Neato! Good luck.

    Thanks Kriston, Kim. Thanks for that link Kriston. I have to do a little more research, but that link demonstrated that my state requires schooling for 7 through 17. Since DD5 won't even be 7 till the summer after first grade, I don't think I will have to file a statement of withdrawl until then which makes it all the more enticing!

    Oh, good, 'Neato! Even better! Sometime it really pays to do 2 minutes' worth of research. I'm glad that was the case here! laugh

    Add us to the list of seriously considering home schooling next year. DS's 2E issues are making school a really hard fit. DH almost agreed in shock when he learned this weekend that DS's school does not even study science in third grade at all. Unfortunately,our district does not allow HS children to participate in any specials that occur during the school day. He would be allowed to be on team sports at the Junior high and high school level once he gets to that age range.
