State Residency Homeschooling Question
I was asked a question that I don't know the answer to but maybe a military homeschooler, since you travel a lot, might.
When do you become subject to a state's homeschooling laws? Is it tied to state residency? Anybody ever had to wrestle with this?
As background, I know some roadschoolers keep their state residency when they travel around. Usually state residency only matters for issues such as:
- state taxes
- driver's license, car registration
And usually, states have pretty clear and aggressive laws about what it takes to set up or remove residency. Does anyone know about how this works for homeschooling?
What about a family that is in another state for only 12 months and they keep their legal residence in the first state. Anyone know if they are subject to the state where they have legal residency or where they sojourn? Does it change if they are on a military base for a 12 month "temporary" assignment?
