I homeschool my two 11th graders in North Alabama. Alabama is one of the easiest states for homeschoolers. Check out Karen Gibson's website

You will need to register with a "cover school" which would be a church that offers you the service of legally covering you. Many churches offer this as a ministry to their members and nonmembers. Some churches might require attendance reports or progress reports, some might not. I believe Karen has a good list of available coverings on her site.

I use a covering out of Huntsville that only requires a statement (form) from me that is sent to the school board letting them know I am homeschooling. Then I also turn in an attendance report to my cover stating how many days we have hs three times a year. That is all the contact I have with them.

I have used another cover in the past that like to receive a more detailed progress report (what books, grade earned, attendance) each sememster. They offered parent-led co-op classes like biology, mock trial, pe, art, alabama history, etc.

All in all, a very easy process.

Good luck ~ Carrie
