It really depends on what state you live in. . . Each state has different laws regarding homeschooling. might be a good place to look!

Maybe you'd get better help contacting a hs group in NC? (I live in Illinois). Here's one: listed in hslda list for Durham County, NC.

I hope this helps!

You don't need to wait for anything from DPNE, or from your local school district/board/whatnot. If you have sent in your notification, you are good to go.

You are not asking permission to homeschool your dc. You are notifying the state that you're going to do so. NC is not an approval state.
