Homeschool for 3 Months Only

by stefaniea4jc

Hi! I will be traveling this winter with my kids and will need to homeschool for 3 months only. Enrolling them in that state's public school isn't an option as we will not be tenants or owners of land and will not be obtaining new drivers' licenses. We are participating in a house swap!

What are the options for schooling them while there? I was hoping to use the WAVA K12 program, but it is VERY expensive as I would have to buy the whole year's curriculum for 3 children. I thought it was a good option as they could still be enrolled in the "public school" and it would be "free of charge," but when speaking to the representative, it has to be a long term commitment.

Any help is appreciated!

That is a very good question! If I understand correctly, you will be enrolling them in the public school where you live in the beginning of the year, but will be gone for 2-3 months in the middle of the year. My recommendation would be to discuss it with each of their teachers and take their books along. That should help to keep them on track with the class for when they return.

Has anyone else had experience in this area? We'd love to hear from you!

Enjoy the house swap, sounds like fun!

Yes, that's correct. Public school to start the year and a break in the middle. I don't know yet if it is an option to leave them enrolled during the year since they will be missing so much school. Aren't there laws against that?

So, I probably have to fill out the paperwork to be "legally" homeschooling them, but stay on track with their classes. I do like that idea. The staff at the school are still on summer break so will ask more questions when the office is open again. Thanks for your reply!

Sounds like you have some great questions for them when they return from summer break! All the best to you and your family! And you are very welcome. :)
