There is not a simple one step process for returning students to public school after homeschooling, because each school system is different, each system has different requirements. The most common situation is when the public school wants to hold the student back and not promote them to the next grade because you did not use an "ACCREDITED"<link curriculum. Public schools are using the "COMMON CORE"<link curriculum throughout Alabama. It is our strong recomendation that you work with the guidence counselor at the school you are going to return to in order for the process to go smoothly as possible.
1. Enroll in a church school of your choice - fees and requirements will vary.
2. Investigate the style of learning your child exhibits.
Allow children to help in this process. Make use of their strengths, interests and learning styles. In our own family we have a Kinesthetic, Logic, Intrapersonal / a Kinesthetic, Verbal, Interpersonal / a Visual, Logic, Nature / a Auditory, Kinesthetic, Verbal etc.....this being the case, there is no one type of curriculum or books that would work for each of my children. After 20 years I have yet to find the golden key. Learning style test link: TEST#1 or TEST#2

3. Develop a course of study and your Method.
4. Create a schedule. Some things to keep in mind to work to your advantage:
Are you a morning or evening family? Large Family Schedule.
Does someone in your family work an odd shift? Or odd days?
Are all your children young or High School?
Is a baby on the way?
