New To Homeschooling?
Choosing to homeschool your children is a major life decision. I can walk you through California's legal requirements as well as help inspire you with all of the resources, information, and connection to other homeschoolers you will need to get started. I have 13 years of experience homeschooling and 10 years of experience coaching families with children in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. I have frequently helped families with gifted children, however, my advice is applicable to any new homeschooling family or parent.
A private school affidavit like the other poster mentioned is really easy to do. I did it for the first time this year during a free seminar out on by a homeschool consultant named Jamie Heston (I think she’s listed on BPN).
If you’re looking for support/funding, you might check out one of the homeschool charter schools. We did Connecting Waters East Bay, but I’ve also heard good things about Valley View. I believe their requirements at the high school level are more strict, but they provide funding for classes/materials and you’re assigned a teacher to meet with once a month who can help make suggestions/guide you/offer resources. Good luck! It’s great that there are so many options now for kids.
