We need to know what forms if any need to be sent in to our local school board to let them know we will be homeschooling this year. Do I need to send a letter of intent?? And if so how do I go about doing this?? Any help would be great. We are in the Norwich area.

Re: homeschool?

Hi Laura,
We have been homeschooling our son for the past three years and we live in Norwich. They originally sent me a form to fill out. I didn't fill it out; I just sent them a brief letter stating that effective immediately we would be homeschooling him. They have not contacted me or asked for anything.

Re: homeschool?

Filing a Notice of Intent is not required by law. It's a "suggested procedure" with a long history preceeding its development.

If you want more information about this, email me privately and I'll send it to you. There's a document on this topic that is going to be posted on its own page on CT CHEER's website soon.
