    Smile letter of intent

    I hear you girl, I want to withdraw my daughters from public school in september and I am not sure if I should say I am not going to homeschool. Or I should just say they are going to a private school.

    Look up the HSLDA they are a homeschool lawyers, and its a membership fee in payments, If you look at F&Q laws of NJ you are not required by law to show a curriculum. Seek them out and they will help you.

    Good Luck

    All you need to do is write a letter notifying the school that your child is no longer attending their school. You will be homeschooling using Time4Learning curriculum. Some schools in New Jersey try to tell you that you have to keep them apprised of any changes to your curriculum and things like that. But all you really have to do is tell them your child will not be returning to school. This is only so your child is not considered truant. My son has never attended school so I didn't even have to do that. You can start Time4Learning now. You don't have to wait until September. You could start out at the level he is in now in school. Do the lessons that will help him catch up. Then in September you can adjust his level or continue from where you are at. You don't have to start in September and finish in June. Unless you really want to follow your own curriculum. Good luck and welcome to Time4Learning.

    Some schools in Jersey try to be really hard core about the whole thing. After all, when we take our children out of their schools, they lose federal money. They try to make it as hard as possible on us. But in reality, there are no laws governing homeschoolers in New Jersey.
