So we are thinking of moving to Iowa, Chris is applying to jobs there since there seems to be mre openings there then around here! My dad grew up there and we like the state. So does anyone here live in IA or now the homeschool laws? I know here in WI we just submit a form but I think I have to do more there?

I don't know anything about it, but I like to direct people looking for state-specific laws and requirements to the HSLDA website. They have a quite comprehensive list for each state!

On the map, HSLDA has Iowa colored orange for mild regulation. Probably a good idea to figure out what is needed to legally homeschool there! Best wishes!

Much thanks to Alethia for my beautiful siggie and tags!!

Yeah, there's a little more. Looks like in addition to the letter, you'll have to either work with a certified teacher or do year-end testing. They also specify the number of days and subjects taught/tested.
