This series of blog entries is designed to answer the most common homeschooling question: What do I have to do in order to homeschool in NH?.
Today's blog focuses on the 3 basic things required by the Homeschooling laws in the State of NH to legally homeschool. Future blogs will go into each of these requirements in more detail.
The most common question asked at homeschool meetings by new homeschoolers is; "What do I have to do in order to homeschool in NH?" Because this question is the key to getting started as an official homeschooler, I thought it would be the best topic for our first blog entry.
To homeschool in NH, you need to do three things: (1) notify your participating agency that you are a homeschooling family, (2) provide some form of evaluation to your participating agency by July 1st at the end of the school year calendar, and (3) maintain a portfolio of the child's work for 2 years after completing the school year.

I'll go into more detail for each of these requirements in future blogs.
