Anyones imput would be helpful here! We are homeschooling, and I was homeschooled grades 3-12 as a child, so I am familiar with it/
My older son and daughter are one grade ahead of their age. But my younger son born in June 2006 is a little slower. He was tested through the hospital to be 9 months behind aprox in his speech last year. So he turned 5 in June and I decided to hold him back a year with homeschooling. He is doing Abeka Academy 4 Year old kindergarden this year, and my hope was to do K5 when he turns 6 next year.
Ok, back to my question....We live in Wisconsin, and the laws here are that a child has to be in school by the time they are 6 years old. N No problem, we plan on doing K5 next year, and with Abeka Academy video school. BUT the catch is that you have to register all the children that you are homeschooling, and they have to be homeschooled at 6 years old. BUT they will not allow anyone to register Kindergarden, you are only allowed to register 1st-12th grade. So what am I supposed to do??? Are they going to force me to put my son through 1st grade next year when I dont feel like he's intelectually ready for it? I am just confused, what I should do??
One more thing, telling a lie is not an option for me. Like marking 1st grade when he's not really in 1st grade.
