How to Keep Track of Homeschool Days

(and why I think it’s pointless)

Homeschool records

Keeping track of homeschool days is one of those unnecessary evils that homeschoolers in many states are required to do.

My method of doing this has changed several times over the course of our homeschool. As a nervous and unsure homeschool newbie, I was as meticulous as could be in my record keeping. Now? Not so much. Almost a decade has passed since we embarked on this journey, and one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned is to not overcomply with state homeschool laws. It’s stressful, time-consuming, and it can lead you on a slippery slope to the school district expecting more from you than what the law requires.

My advice? Avoid doing that at all costs.

With that being said, I realize that different families have different preferences for recordkeeping, so in this video I described the four methods we’ve used in our homeschool, and why I think the whole idea of keeping attendance records for homeschoolers is ludicrous in the first place.

Enjoy!
