Hello!  I have a question that I can't find the answer to.  Obviously, I'll call and ask at the superintendent's office but I'd also like to hear other's thoughts.


We have sold our home and are living in temporary housing while we look for a new house to buy. We are actively looking, but he market is tough.  We have been bouncing around in different living situations, currently at my parents and we have a place lined up for most of the fall.  We will look for a long term rental in October if we haven't found a place by then.


In the mean time, where do we register as homeschoolers?  We no longer live in the town we were in last year and don't have a real current town.  We have a po box in the city my husband works in.


Has anyone else been in this situation?

What state are you in? We have a friend who travels a ton for weeks/months at a time; our state (NC) just asked her to pick one address for mailings. There should be a contact number/email addy posted on your state website to call & ask.
Good luck on your house hunt!

When do you need to register?

We're in a similar situation, and what I plan to do is to register right at the due date with the address of the place we are living when the registration due date hits, and then do it again when/if we move. We shouldn't have more than 2 addresses this school year though. If we were moving once a month or every couple weeks, I'd choose a family member's address as our "permanent address" and register once there. If I did that, I'd be extra careful to keep records or other proof that we are indeed doing stuff for homeschool, because I feel like we are more likely to come under scrutiny as a transient family.

It's annoying, but especially with new/temporary neighbors, I will sleep better knowing that I've dotted my 'i's and crossed my 't's, KWIM?

Good luck!
