Sooooo.... Give me the basics on this, please!! What to include, what to exclude? Links to some good sample letters? We are planning on having ours in the mail before the end of next week. Do I need to call the school board at all for anything? Or just send them this letter in the mail? A little confused on this part. Thanks ladies!
I've never had to do one, so I can't comment from personal experience, but I can tell you what friends in other states have told me... unless your law specifically states that you have to list curriculum, etc., don't. If the law just wants a letter of intent and that's all, simply write up a short letter (really, like 1-2 sentences) saying you intend to homeschool (full name & DOB) during the (20xx-20xx) school year. Make SURE you mail it with the confirmation or signature option so they can't claim they didn't get it.
Ok, so I am pretty sure I found a good sample letter on the CHEK site. So is it appropriate for me to ask them to mail me a copy of DD's Kindergarten records in the letter? Or do I need to call to get that?
You will probably have to go in and get her record, I had to sign something stating that I was picking it up and withdrawing her from school. There is a CHEK convention this weekend in Louisville somewhere if your interested.
