I found a great website and just wanted to share. Its called Homeschool Skedtrack and it is free. Description from the site-
I've been playing with it for about a week now and I'm thinking it is going to be really great for this upcoming school year. You put the lessons in sequentially by course, but not tied to dates, so they get checked off as completed and roll over to the next day that subject is scheduled. You input the amount of time (handy for those with requirements) for the school year hours, and the amount of time generally spent on the course per day (can be edited). It will tally it all and tell you if you're not meeting time requirements. You can put in more than one student and even copy whole courses if they are the same or very similar. You can also have it so that the students can log in with their own id and see exactly what is on the agenda for the day and check off what they complete (then it is checked off but pending teacher's approval to be marked complete for that date). It even has a log for hobbies and resources info too. It seems like if one wanted too they could easily keep track of chores or outside activities with this too, they do have a way to input field trips. I haven't clicked on everything yet, but so far I'm loving it. There is also a forum, but I only peeked at it for a minute and it did not appear very busy. It did take me a little bit of playing around to figure out how to make next year's school year and make it default. There are video tutorials to watch.
