Homeschooling 101 & Legal Aspects of Alabama Homeschooling
If you are thinking about starting to homeschool, or just want some information to help make that decision, we’ve got a workshop for you! Every family has its own unique situation that bring them to this point, but is it the right thing for your child? We’ll talk about some of the motivations to homeschool, different student learning styles, various methods for home education, Alabama state law, curricula choices, and recordkeeping.. There is no specific homeschooling statute in Alabama. Families who choose to teach their children at home use either the church school law, the private school law, or the private tutor law. We’ll explain these three options, as well as give the pros and cons of each of them. We’ talk about compulsory attendance age, necessity of school enrollment verification for drivers permits and licenses, and things to think about legally after high school. We’ll also touch on how homeschooled students (in grades 7-12) can play sports with the public school for which they are zoned.
