Each homeschool family is required to notify their local school district of their intent to homeschool each year. On the Christian Home Educators of Ohio's website, there is a form to complete and deliver to the superintendent of your local school district telling of your intent to homeschool.
There are so many resources available on choosing the curriculum that is best for your family. You may simply want to search "Best Homeschool Curriculum". The link below is a great resource on how to get started on choosing curriculum from Focus on the Family.
Under Ohio's new law, homeschool families are no longer required to complete and turn in an assessment of each homeschool student. Families are, however, encouraged to consider the benefits of assessments for students. The link bellow explains options for assessments.
Even though homeschool families are not required to adhere to the state's graduation requirements, it is a good idea to prepare your student for a potential college opportunity. Colleges do require a certain number of courses, credits and standardized test results. The link below is the Ohio Department of Education's graduation recommendations.
Christian Homeschool Conventions
"Homeschool Families Thrive Together"
“to preserve the God-given, constitutional right to home educate, and to support and encourage families in fulfilling this biblical responsibility”.
"Equipping, Encouraging, Fun!"
Let's face it, some days are super hard to homeschool. You are not alone!
"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength..."
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
We are not meant to do life alone! A great place to start in finding a homeschool connection is through a local church. Another place for connection is in finding a local homeschool group.
