Can somebody with experience navigating PA's homeschool laws please give me a plain-English explanation of how it works? Here in NJ, the law basically requires NOTHING. But DP and I have been considering for awhile moving across the river, and if we do it will be a long-term move (we'd be buying our home). One of the major considerations would be DD's education, once she's old enough to need one, and frankly the information I've found on PA's homeschool laws is daunting and intimidating. Is it really all that bad, in reality? How did it work out for you?

Basically you need to submit an affadavit, an out line of what you are going to do through the year, and for certain ages a physical and dental. Then you need to keep a portfolio and have an evaluation at the end of the year. You can choose the evaluator. Grade 3 and 11 I think that's it, they need to take the achievement tests.

What I did the last year we homeschooled we joined a cyber school so I didn't have to do all that paper work.

The link Tara gave you will help a lot to. I have TONS of PA links if you decided you need them.
