Very new to homeschooling and the laws of California

Postby OrangeHope » Sun Apr 15, 2012 9:42 pm

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 :) 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. :-)

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. :-)

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