Letter of Intent

posted Aug 3, 2019, 9:28 PM by UCHA

As public schools in the region will be opening their doors to students in the next few weeks, homeschooling parents will need to mail their letters of intent to their local Board of Education. 

"In Kentucky, under state law, all children must be enrolled in school between the ages of six (6) and 18. If a child is six (6) by August 1, he or she MUST be enrolled in primary school."

A sample letter of intent, if you're not sure what to include, can be found on page 7 of the Kentucky Home School Information packet. Link below.
https://education.ky.gov/federal/fed/Documents/Kentucky%20Homeschool%20Information%20Packet.pdf

Your letter will be addressed to the Board of Ed in your county of residence. Some people mail their letters with standard first class mail, but if you want a receipt to show that it was received, you can choose to send it "certified mail" or "signature required".

class.

Part 2-The Renaissance to the Present.

The book needed is The Joy of Signing Puzzle book 1. Amazon sells
a set that has the first and second puzzle book as well as a hard back
book that has all the signing information. It isn't necessary to have
the big book, but it is very helpful. And if the student intends to take
ASL2 next year, then they will need the second puzzle book anyway. Any
questions can be messaged to me on Facebook or my phone number is
