Want to know how our family of five home schools in the state of Virginia?
Go to www.heav.org to see more information.
But here we have a one page document curriculum.
And what we're going to be doing-
you don't have to have an official curriculum that you use.
We just kind of make it up with Dollar Tree books and Barnes & Noble books (see more about what we do here: https://www.virginiaphotosandfilms.com/single-post/want-to-homeschool-in-virginia-here-is-what-we-have-done-for-over-a-decade)
and then you're going to do your NOI-which is your notice of intent, which talks about actual State approval and what laws are in play. (See more here: https://heav.org/how-to-start-homeschooling-in-virginia/
You have to have a notice of evidence that you can teach your children by way of a GED equivalent.
You can get a transcript from your high school I have my master's degree in education that I submit
but of course you just have to have a GED equivalent
testing is done in two ways. You can have an evaluator evaluate your kids writing samples, or you can take one of the many standardized testing sites.
(We use https://www.academicexcellence.com/ for their untuned CAT)
You just have to have a four out of nine stanine to pass.
