Live in Citrus County and need to know how to follow reporting requirements
as Unschooler through Florida Unschoolers, instead of using yearly teacher evaluations/testing. They have tendency not to understand breaking AWAY from the boundaries of required subjects, textbooks and the like. We adhere to 180 days and do some online schooling which reports to district, but are still under the Homeschool umbrella so are required for yearly reporting evaluations. Want to free-up. What do I need to do for the local school district to recognize we are schooling and still adhere to the law?
This is the web link to Florida Unschoolers Umbrella School that we are with. There's no fee to join. No portfolio's to keep. No yearly evaluations required. You only have to report 180 days per school year, whatever you deem a school year (6 months, year round schooling, etc). Check it out! :)
Can someone tell me the name/link of an umbrella school? I saw it here and some other posts but can't seem to find their website. It is "Alternative or Alternate Education xxx". They charge $25 yearly or something like that.
I'm trying to decide which umbrella to register in and I remember reading about this one. Any other recommended umbrella schools?
Hi everyone, we are just north of Tampa and regularly travel to surrounding areas. Our 3 kids are turning 14 this month, and we are considering several different adventures to celebrate their birthday. One is a zip line tour near Ocala, another idea is Universal Studios (again). Does anyone know of anything else that would fun for 14 year old?
Just a reminder that the Florida Unschooling Conference is in less than 6 weeks and registration closes at the end of the month! Florida Unschooling Conference- Un in the Sun!
It was great seeing you and Timmy again. We will schedule another beach day next month. Hope to see you there!
Hey Robin! It was great to see you & your family Tues.! We really enjoyed seeing you all, glad we made it!
The first year we homeschooled, we used the evaluation option for the county (Volusia). The following year when it came time for the evaluation, I found myself dreading it so we switched to an umbrella school. Since an umbrella school looks like a private school as far as the county is concerned, they no longer cared about the evaluation as my son was no longer enrolled with them.
Unschooling has been smooth sailing since!
Hey Robin, not sure we will make it this morning after all. Timmy was up half the night, didn't feel well. I think I still have your number & will try to call you later.
