Homeschool Notification

There are so many good resources out there to help you fill out your letter of intent to start homeschooling.  I thought it might be helpful to link  a few of them here as a help.

My friend Lisa McAfee at Schoolmarm Ohio wrote about how to fill out the notification form.  She also has a post that explains items 6 and 7 more clearly on the notification form.

Another  resource is the HSLDA of Ohio They have forms and articles at their website.  One more is CHEO.   I feel CHEO is one of the easiest to follow.  They take you step by step through the process.

Another great resource is Renee Brown's book Ohio Homeschooling: Guide & Directory. She does an excellent job explaining the process and so much more!

Hopefully this will get you started.  I save my form to my computer and just update it each year by adding curriculum and kids.
