Nope!

If my state required anything, I'd keep that.

Talk to some people who homeschooled and sent a child to college. Some colleges use a portfolio process to admit a homeschooled student but they are looking for specific things, usually from the junior and senior year. I think it's a good idea to start looking at what colleges want from a homeschooled student early in high school, just to be prepared, even if you don't know if your child will go to college or which college.

Default Re: Keeping records

Came back to say I’m referring only to what we’ve NEEDED to keep. We can easily provide documentation if more is needed. And I’m slow to toss and clean stuff so curriculum is here if we need it. Once kid #3 is in college I will purge better

However, in high school, I put my kids in charge of a portfolio of sorts. As well as their checklists and work completion. I audit and supervise of course . Once dd1 was accepted to and registered for fall semester, she threw everything away after asking what I wanted. I’m going to get more involved w ds cuz he’d toss everything if I don’t look first

And I’m in a low reporting state. Only need to register and be able provide attendance IF I get a call. I’ve not known anyone to get a call.

In high school I stop worrying abt state requirements and focus 100% on “college prep” from 9th grade. To clarify that by far exceeds my state’s requirements I require a kid be ready for college whether they want to go or it kid #2 insisted his entire life he wasn’t going to college. Now he finds himself in a job he may want to pursue advancement and requires a 4 year degree. He’s starting senior year and because he HATES school, He has slacked off in certain areas but a year will be plenty to polish up what he needs for college.

Default Re: Keeping records

Ok guys over the rest of this month I am going to go though all the past school things I have kept and try to ruthlessly pair them down.

On some level it feels very very wrong to me and I can't quite put a finger on why. But there is no reason why I need to keep every math sheet and every handwriting practice page. I am going to have to slowly sneak these thing out in to the recycling and compost because early bird is super attached to everything she has ever touched.
