I need more hours in the day…

Lots of interesting stuff going on in the Virginia homeschool community lately so I have been spending a lot of my online time on my email lists…which means that I have not had much time to post here!

For those of you in Virginia, be sure to check out the new information on the VaHomeschoolers website. There have been some issues with some superintendents questioning the “description of curriculum” that homeschoolers need to submit with with their NOI and it looks like Nelson County is going to start offering K12 to homeschoolers for free…the catch? You have to put your kids back in public school. Needless to say, VaHomeschoolers will be keeping our eye on developments…

Read All About Curriculum Descriptions – guidelines on what to include with your NOI

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Thanks Stephanie! Since I do live in VA, this post is quite enlightening.

    I hope all this stuff gets resolved soon. I’ve been on the Ecclectic Board reading up on the Henrico issues…I’m in Richmond, though, and since my dd is in K, I don’t anticipate any problems this year. I am keeping my eyes open, because who knows what next year will hold!

    Thanks for helping to keep everyone informed!

    Wow, I feel pretty lucky after reading those NOI requirements. Illinois has the k12 thing here too and has been careful not to call it homeschooling.
