In Reply to: count credits or state req. hours? posted by Lee on August 18, 2008 at 9:31 pm:

you will have to have your ds keep track of how many hours he spends doing anything education related. If you just have to have 1050 total hours, he wouldn't need to keep track of each subject individually, just the total for the day.

Certainly include hours for field trips, etc. And if you think he will take fewer than 1050 hours to finish the number of credits you want him to take for college prep, then also include anything hours spent in anything else you could remotely consider "school"---just be sure you include those activities written down somewhere so you could support calling those hours school. For example, discussions about current events at the supper table or in the car, music lessons and practice time, sports involvement (for PE), devotions either public or private, seminars for special interests he has, general reading he does not related to specific credit courses, personal exercise program, programs watched from the history channel or discovery channel or etc., even historically based movies could count. Just because these activities are not working toward a high school credit does not mean they are not "educational", so they can count for the hours your state requires. And of course, also include any time your ds spends working on the courses you are going to give him a credit for.

You would still want your ds to accumulate the credits he needs for college enrollment; collecting the state-required number of hours is just another hoop he will have to jump through for your state.
