I would really like to homeschool my DD and I have googled the homeschooling laws of California but I'm not really sure I understand...

Do I need to notify the state that I will be homeschooling my DD? do I need to fill out a paper asking for permission to homeschool?
If not, then do I just pick out a curriculum and start there?

Sorry these questions might sound silly but I'm so new to all this Smile if anyone can please clear this up for me that would be great.

Between October 1 and October 15, you will fill out a form called a Private School Affidavit ("PSA"). You can do it on-line. You only do this, BTW, if your dc will be 6 by December 2. Smile

This is where you find the on-line form, although it will not be available until October. There are lots of words, but don't let them confuse you. Smile

Is your dc in school now? Or would she be starting school this fall?
