    Exclamation just moved to Texas


    We have been homeschooling in Florida for the past 6 years. We just moved to Texas; what do I need to do?

    In Florida I had to submit a letter of intent the first year. Then at the end of each year I had to either submit testing or have my child do an evaluation with a certified teacher and show his portfolio to her. Then send the "passed/promoted" letter from the teacher to the school board. Then the school board would send me a letter saying they accept his promotion to the next grade.

    Now we are in Texas and I am not sure what to do. Can someone please tell me. And how is my child promoted to the next grade each year - does Texas do it the way Florida does?

    TX is a great state for homeschooling. You do not have to do the testing, portfolio... Here are links to help you.
