you report the same way that all other homeschoolers do, by
submitting a portfolio documenting your work and a log listing all
reading materials used.

portfolio's do not have to include the worksheets of other methods.
it can consist of samples of any generated work, photos of students
activities, parent descriptions of what was done,

logs of reading materials consists of anything that was read:
museum signs, nutritional lables, price shelf labels, video game
instructions, penpal lettes, magazines, web pages, etc. if they read
it, it can go on list.

for objectives we resubmit a standard generic form every year that
we downloaded from for hours of schooling we
include a paragraph that states that we believe learning is organic
and happens every day and that we thereby certify that they were
taught the required hours.

i have unschooled in pa for 18 years and our best portfolios' ever
submitted one year were soundly rejected because they couldn't
recognize learning without paper work. we kept forcing school
district to leave phone messages and responded to all calls with a
letter requesting them to follow the law and send us a certified
letter. once they wrote, we had them. i emailed our homeschool
liaison in harrisburg and sent copy of letter. she called them and
explained how the homeschooling law worked. we never heard
from school district whether our ports were ultimately accepted or
not but we figured no news was good news and we have never had
a problem since.
