<p>We are moving from our second 'easy' homeschooling state to Pa.<span><img alt="yikes2.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/yikes2.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, obviously without posting anything incriminating<span><img alt="bag.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/bag.gif"></span><span>, is it really that big of a deal not to register? </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Does anyone have any experience with this, or know someone who does?</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think I would rather live with the stress of not registering than the stress of jumping through all their hoops.<span><img alt="nut.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/nut.gif"></span></p>

People do it here, for sure. I have known a few. But it *is* hugely stressful. I was underground for a few years and I find reporting (though unquestionably a PITA) *much* less stressful than looking over my shoulder.<br><br>
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).<br><br>
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.

<p>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.</p>
<p>In fact, I would label PA as an easy homeschooling state. </p>
