Homeschool Information Packet
Librarians receive many inquiries from parents interested in homeschooling. In order to help local librarians answer these questions, KHEA has produced the free, 70-page, Homeschool Information Packet, which includes all the basic information a parent will need in order to explore homeschooling as an educational alternative. Everything from Kentucky laws, to curriculum sources, to a suggested reading list and helpful articles are included. This is an excellent resource. You may wish to print this and bind it in a comb binding for a handy, desktop reference.
Kentucky Laws explained
This includes a complete copy of the Best Practice Approach to Homeschool Verification - a document produced by a task force which included local and state education officials, and two homeschool state associations.
This includes graduation requirements, options for highschoolers, college prep, curriculum guide, high-school timetable, state recognition of credits, re-enrolling in public school, and an article for parents on homeschooling highschoolers.
