I'm wondering if anyone is involved in their school districts program for homeschooled kids (if there is one)? Our district has a program for homeschooled kids where they offer all types of classes for the kids. You can pick and choose what you want and you are able to choose your own curriculum. BUT it sounds like the kids would actually be apart of the public school system and therefore they would lose their "homeschooled" status. Does anyone belong to anything like this? Pros and cons? I'm a little tempted because they provide a stipend for any non-religious materials you purchase and that could include extra-curricular stuff like swimming lessons, a pass to the science museum, etc. But I really don't like the idea of being held accountable to the public school system. I think they require me to come up with a learning plan and log the hours I "teach". Hmm..I'm not too sure about that.
