my son shows horses and is gone every weekend at horse shows. he has to miss every friday to travel to the show grounds. so we are going to start homeschooling. now for the future when we make a transcript for college and everything, what would we put for the 9th grade and second half of 10th grade? if i requested the records from the school, or at least copies, will they give them to me?

Well, there's material covered, hours spent, and grade. Just merge your best estimate of what he's done so far with what he does for the rest of this school year or grade and you'll be fine. And it doesn't really matter a whole lot in the end as long as you standardized test for everything (CLEP, AP, etc.), since standardized test scores trump transcript.

As for requesting records from the school, I think schools are required to pass along records to other schools if formally requested to, so if they give you any trouble, just write them a formal letter stating that your school Stevens Learning (or whatever you feel like calling it) now has student such and such enrolled and would they please pass along the records. Make sure it's certified mail, and if THAT doesn't get a response, get your state homeschool groups and/or Home School Legal Defense Association involved.

Up until recently we've had very easy to log activities. They were assigned work and worked from books and computer and everything was structured....but we've slowly started moving into an unschooling environment and I feel soooo lost! I've found a few things online that could help me log (I currently use Homeschool Tracker-I love it but it's easier when I actually have workbooks to log)
