Homeschooling in NY, but in Russian (possible?)

Postby nikimda » Thu Dec 23, 2010 5:13 am

Hello
I am a native Russian living currently in NY and I am wondering if I could homeschool my child in russian.
We will be moving back to Russia in about 1 years. I would like to teach her russian first grade curriculum.
Is that possible? Who would I need to contact about that?
I would be very grateful for any information.

I believe you're expected to teach English reading and writing. What languages you teach beyond that are up to you. That assumes, of course, that you're actually required to teach at all, which depends on the age of your child and (I would guess) whether you're just here for a short, temporary period or have been here for quite some time. If you're paying taxes, you're also required to follow the education laws.

привет... hi.

I know basic Russian, but I'll translate with a translator.

Good catch. I'm guessing it was a spam bot, since there was a signature linked to a Russian site selling legal services, but it didn't hurt to answer the question, and I've removed the signature now.
