Can I begin homeschooling mid-year?

Are there any important reasons not to begin homeschooling in the middle of an ongoing school year?

One of the beauties of homeschooling is that families can set their own schedule. It is not necessary to follow a traditional school calendar, although many families do. Some parents find it works better to keep their kids on a year round schedule, others plan on taking time off when other family members have vacation time or to travel. Most states have requirements regarding the number of school days per year. In my state, North Carolina, students are required to attend school for 180 days per year. So, if you begin homeschooling in the middle of the school year, you can count the number of days the student attended traditional school prior to beginning homeschooling toward the required number of school days for that school year.

As far as curriculum goes, you may choose to continue work that the child began in traditional school or you may not. Each state has different curriculum requirements, so it is best to first check with your state's department of non-public education. The Homeschool Legal Defense League has a state by state guidelines chart.

If a school situation isn't working, I see little reason to keep the child in school for additional weeks or months unless the parent is not ready to homeschool. Many families begin homeschooling after the traditional school year has begun. Check your state homeschool organization to be sure you will be in compliance with laws regarding school withdrawal before you take any action. All you really need to get started is a library card, so don't worry about finding the perfect curriculum before your child is even home. It will save you time and money if you wait and talk to other homeschool families before investing a lot in materials that might not be the best fit.

And for those who worry that it might be sending a bad message, that you should make your child tough it out rather than "quit" - think, instead, of being in a job you hate. When you find another job that fits you better, you leave your old job - and no one thinks less of you for "quitting." You are merely changing your job situation. School is your child's job, so your child is merely moving from one place (school) to do his or her job to another (home.)

And I agree with Lorel - a library card is an amazingly wonderful homeschooling tool. We started hsing when DH was laid off - so money was tight. We were able to find all sorts of great resources at the library.
