Even though you are choosing to homeschool, it is never a bad thing to try to build a relationship with your local school district, so calling them to get information might be a good idea, too. As your kid(s) get older, you may need some subject-specific enhancement, and your district may offer a dual-enrollment option, or you may want to participate in school sports. Even if those programs don't exist now, they might in the future, so it's good to be friendly (even if htey are not - it's the flies-with-honey theory!)!
Never let your schooling interfere with your education. ~Mark Twain~
