**Disclaimer: All information presented on this blog is based on our best understanding of current homeschool laws in the state of Florida at the time of each posting, and in particular the homeschool laws for Hillsborough County, where Class Source is located. However, we are not legal experts, and the information posted in this group does not constitute legal advice. Homeschool laws can vary by county and state. If you are uncertain of the homeschool regulations and requirements in your area, please verify using your local resources. The HSLDA website has a resource which allows you to look up homeschool laws by state, and is a good place to start: https://hslda.org/legal.**
This week's FAQ is:
Do I have to use a certain curriculum?
No. You have the freedom to choose whatever works best for your family, and even for each individual child. Some home-educating parents choose to purchase pre-packaged curriculum, while others assemble their own materials from various resources, and still others choose to utilize co-ops to share the teaching among parents with differing expertise, structured group programs like Classical Conversations, or more flexible, a la carte class programs like what we do at Class Source. Whatever you choose to use as a curriculum or structure, you are still your child’s teacher. You have the freedom to adapt and shift at any point in order to better accommodate your child’s learning style, goals, and needs.
