@Heather. I'd love to have a "meet up" with other unschoolers/homeschoolers we're in Fayette Co, so we're not too far from Pitts. I have three boys are are 5, 15, and 17.
We actually work under the hometutor law (which means I need to be prepared to show that we do 900 hours just in case but don't have to turn in anything or do testing.) This means that I have a teachers degree but sadly not enough hours in a classroom to be able to evaluate. However I do have friends that have to work under the regular law-- the portfolios just need to show that they are learning and show a variety of learning experiences. If you keep a blog and journal your experiences then print some up and put that in -- a lot of the unschoolers I know use journals for their portfolio. I would also put in tons of photos of them obviously learning in various areas. For a while I kept a portfolio just in case and had a chart where I checked off anytime I caught them involved in any of the subjects PA requires, with little notes regarding what they were doing.
Though actually from what you posted it looks like you would be fine. It depends on your school district-- I know in ours they don't even really look (lots of homeschoolers that give a ton of info in their portfolios and only a few people to look through the lot.
So what are you guys doing for your portfolios? This is our first "real" year of unschooling. I thought about just tossing in a few worksheets from the various curriculum I bought at the beginning of the school year before I wanted to get into unschooling, along with the attendance sheet, and list of learning materials we used during the year.
My evaluators very unschooling friendly, and only asks for a reading book list, so I don't have to worry about any strict compliance's from her.
