So, I live in Missouri and I am currently on probation for truancy. I was wondering if it would be legal for me to switch to homeschooling before the start of the new school year.

Hmm. Would probably depend on the specific wording of the court decision. You are not truant if you are homeschooling, and Missouri is generally a very easy place to homeschool in, but given a prior truancy conviction, they may have set things up in such a way that you are forced to attend public school. I can't give you specific guidance because everything I'm finding is about homeschooling first and truancy proceedings second, not the other way around.

My advice, short of having you type in the truancy documents so I can see the wording, is to contact Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), as they're lawyers who specialize in this sort of thing and will undoubtedly know the answer.
