Look up Home School Legal Defense Association on line... I think their web address is HSLDA.org or .com... not sure the ending.. anyways they have the legalities required for each state.. and lots of links and advice also stories from each state if anyone has had trouble with officials in that state, also you can join them and get legal defense just in case you have to deal with officials that are giving people trouble who choose to home school. anyways, GOOD LUCK!!!
