I wanted to Homeschool my cousin, she is not doing very well in school and has failed a year and I feel as if since I am a SAHM, I can spend more time with her and really work with her. I am not sure though how to go about getting the information I need to do this correctly. Can someone please help?

What state are you in?
what grade is your cousin in?
Most likely her mom would have to do all the paper work if your state requires that stuff or at least look at it and sign it.

She means legal paper work. Not sure about Virginia but some states will only let you homeschool your own children, or it has to at least look like your homeschooling your own kids if you kwim. So on any official paper work such as withdrawl from school, notification of intent etc has to be done by the mum.

You are the second Virginian to ask about homeschooling another person's child. It's not within the law here, but not excluded either, so people can do it. Your SIL will have to be the one to submit the paperwork and be considered the child's teacher. There is tons of information at http://www.vahomeschoolers.org to get you pointed in the right direction of what you need to do.

Hi, I'm the other Virginian who asked! I'm going to be schooling my niece and nephew (already am doing sort of a Pre-K/K program with my nephew). Their mother will file all necessary paperwork (the NOI this year, and then NOI and test results in subsequent years) and be the "teacher" but I'm the one responsible for organizing and implementing the program with the kids, and making sure they complete their standardized tests at the end of each year. She buys the curriculum that we recommend/request, and we use the books she purchases plus whatever I already own or stuff from the library.
