    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!
