Ahh! Thank you. So, 24 states have no portfolio review or other requirements. Awesome. Thanks! My Google search was not finding anything this good.

Well, they aren't all exactly that easy. The map is a little misleading. SOme of them that are coded as having nor requirements actually say they require annual testing and immmunization records, etc.
Guess I'll keep digging!

NM though is yellow only requires you to send notice every yr. and that you have a hs diploma or GED. says you need vax records but you can file an exemption.

This is one issue where Oklahoma is about as 'green' as they come Homeschooling is considered a sacred right around here and is really common. We're not backwards about everything at least, lol. I can't comment on how accurate the map is for other states.

Alaska is good, too. We don't have to report anything to anyone.

NC requires testing but it's not the big deal it seems. You choose the test and have to keep scores on file (along with attendance records) at your homeschool for 1 year and that's it. No one reviews the results or anything else.

AZ is pretty easy, simply fill out an affidavit of intent the first time you HS and no one ever bothers you again... we love it... and honestly its the main reason we are still in this g*d forsaken land.

i live in SC and that colored map isn't very accurate imo (for our state that is). there are 3 options for homeschoolers here, and 3rd option homeschoolers do not need to do professional evaluations. i'm not sure about testing....i think not - but i need to check.

OR- Not too bad. You just send in one letter per kid when you start homeschooling them. Then you test them in grades 3,5,8,and 10 but in most counties you hold onto the scores yourself. There are no portfolios or check ups.

There are no penalties for flying under the radar, so many do that. If you get "caught" you just have to send in a letter of intent right away and then begin testing on the next applicable test. So no biggie.

IL. No requirement to turn anything in, have any testing done, or even register as a homeschooler. According to the ISBE, there is a case that established that if a family is investigated, the burden is on the parents to show they are homeschooling and covering the required subjects...so it's a good idea to have some sort of recordkeeping going on....but aside from that, there is no legal requirement to submit anything, have anything reviewed, tests, registration, etc.

Indiana requires no reporting, testing, portfolios. It's very homeschooler friendly.

Kentucky only requires that you send in notice to the school district every school year. No testing is required.

From what I read, Nevada only reuires a form of intent for each child, and that only once. Not uite as wonderful as Alaska was, but when you are military and have no choice over where you live, you learn to not expect much.
