Organizing Paperwork – What To Keep? – PART 1

It’s taken me many months, but I’ve finally figured out an easy way to organize my homeschool records so I wanted to share my method with you.

Homeschool Records

  • homeschool records

    Copy of Homeschool Enrollment Form

  • School Calendar – holidays and vacation days listed

  • Attendance sheet

  • Report Card

  • Course of Study – lists resources used

  • Goal sheet

  • 6 Week Lesson Plans – for each subject

I use the above as a Table of Contents in a 3 ring binder and it keeps me from leaving something important out.  Then I just put each sheet from the bullet points above in a page protector pocket and keep them in the order as they are listed.  In the state of Alabama the copy of the Church School Enrollment form and the attendance sheet are the only things required, but the other items are necessary for ME as a teacher.  🙂
