You mean foster parents, or relatives?

EDIT: Never mind, found your other thread on this. Alabama law has two options for homeschooling:

http://www.chefofalabama.org/ala_law.htm
There are two ways to home school legally in Alabama. One is the "Tutorial Law" (Ala. Code �16-28-5). Under this statute a certified teacher may instruct a student or students privately. The tutor must submit to monitoring by the local school district officials, and hold school a minimum of 140 days a year at certain times. This option is not available to most home educators.

The second and preferred way is known as the "Church School Law" (Ala. Code �16-28-3). Under this statute students between the ages of 7 and 16 are exempt from the state's compulsory school attendance law if they are enrolled in schools operated by a church or association of churches.


Basically, you should have no problems if you are a certified teacher. If you are not a certified teacher, you can have the parents enroll their children in a church school acting as an umbrella school for homeschoolers, then it shouldn't really matter who does the teaching from there.
