As a homeschooling mom, I’m careful to make sure that I’m doing everything that the law requires. Here in Georgia, we are required to file a Declaration of Intent each year and keep a copy of our attendance reports. Every 3 years starting in 3rd grade, we have testing. We also have to do a written performance report at the end of each year showing our child’s progress. Now comes the big question. How do I keep all these papers organized and easily found if needed?
Simple! A few years ago, I made a 1 inch binder and put in dividers for each year. Everything is clearly labeled and easy to find. Behind the divider goes that year’s important papers – DOI, Attendance, Performance Reports, any test results, etc. All the stuff that is required by law to keep goes in this binder. That way IF I’m ever asked to prove anything, it’s all just an arm’s reach away. The binder is then stored at the top of our school bookshelves to make sure littles don’t get this binder out by mistake.
