Hi I"m Deb Brown and live in St. Louis, MO. My son Nick is now home after struggling with many things the past few months .. so now I'm going to have to homeschool my teen. He's gone through 8grade at a Charter School & I'm hoping high school at home will be easier. Anyways joining group for tips etc.
The following article has many tips. I would read the beginning about understanding State Laws, and then scroll down to the section about home education for High School that provides several links for you.
Hey Deb. I live just across the river from you in IL. I also pulled my 9th grader out of school at Easter last year after a rough move. I found that once we were both deschooled and relaxed, schooling has been so much easier. Good luck!
