My oldest misses the cut off date for public school by 17 days. I know i can file to have him go the year before since hes so close but how does it work if i intend to home school? We live in florida if that makes a difference.
I agree with everyone else. My son also missed the cutoff last year. The state we were living in doesn't test in and when we moved to our current state they don't test in either. So we started him in Kinder to see how it went and he was so bored because he already knew it all(we teach at home and he went to a preschool program last year(was a gymnastics/preschool program). So we took him out.
Our state's age isn't until age 8 so we didn't have to do anything beyond withdrawling him from school. :)
I'm going to let you know now that if you want to continue in FL once he is of age that you are going to want to seek an umbrella program. The only reason I suggest this is because they require state testing otherwise. Most umbrella programs want you to keep track of attendance and not much else. Go ahead and check your area for homeschool groups and they can point you in the direction of a local one that doesn't cost a fortune. I know we have one where I live and I think the cost is around $50 a year per child.
