A typical school year is 36 weeks long, if schooling 5 days a week, or 180 days. Half days, teacher's work days and field trips are generally counted among those 180 days. Do you need a way to track your homeschool attendance this year?
It's important to keep track of your child's homeschool attendance and to keep that attendance record as part of your permanent school records. I have found that the easiest way to do that, in our family, is a check sheet for each child, and we simply check off the days in which educational activities take place. We can also use it to mark sick days, field trips, holidays etc. I try to fill it out monthly for each child, otherwise I tend to forget what happened when. At the end of the school year, I scan it and/or file the physical copy with our permanent records for the year.
