Hello there!<br><br>
First time I am on this forum. I am looking into doing cyber school for DS when he gets older, right now he's too young of course. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Anyway, I was wondering if there is any difference between cyberschool vs homeschool or unschooling?<br><br>
Also, I just took DS to a ND (naturopathic doctor) in the area (he HS's all his kids) and he said that when they are of school age, by law they have to be 'seen' once a year by an MD (ND's aren't allowed to be licensed in Pa yet..hopefully that will change..sigh), and also every year by a dentist! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Has anyone else heard this as well? I guess you can't just take your LO in if they are sick anymore. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Big bro wants to keep track of everyone apparently. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Cyber school is essentially doing public school at home. It's a little flexible so cyber schoolers can find homeschoolers to be useful resources for extra curricular activities, socialization opportunities and such.<br><br>
Check out <a href="http://www.askpauline.com" target="_blank">www.askpauline.com</a> for details about the laws and requirements. It is a site by a homeschooler. The dental and medical check ups are not every year. Vision does seem to be annually. Measuring height and weight (by the teacher which would mean the parent for a homeschooler, don't know about for cyber school) is a annual thing.
