We are moving from our second 'easy' homeschooling state to Pa.
So, obviously without posting anything incriminating, is it really that big of a deal not to register?
Does anyone have any experience with this, or know someone who does?
I think I would rather live with the stress of not registering than the stress of jumping through all their hoops.
I have never known anyone who was caught underground losing their kids in PA. But I wouldn't want to go through, and put my kids through, a truancy proceeding. And I definitely wouldn't have wanted to deal with an order to put my kids in school (the most likely penalty if you are caught).
I don't recommend it. There is a great deal of support in PA to help you comply with the reporting law as minimally as possible. It really is doable. I report for three kids and it is manageable.
Follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
I didn't find a need for it when I was homeschooling here. The reporting is easy and at least in my experience, the school district was really helpful and handed me a paper with exactly what I needed to do.
In fact, I would label PA as an easy homeschooling state.
