Alabama Homeschool Legalities
Homeschooling is regulated at the state level and changes may be made to the relevant statutes at any time. Always consult the actual state code (which is usually online at your state's official website) for the most up to date and accurate legal information with regard to homeschooling. Also keep in mind that interpretations of the code—whether provided by school districts or homeschool groups—can be helpful, but may or may not be an accurate reflection of the law. Always combine interpretations with your own reading of the statute itself.
A quick note about sticking to what the law requires:
The "Show Me" Letter - Many an uninformed (or informed but overzealous) school administration official has asked local homeschoolers for more documentation than the state homeschool law requires. In The "Show Me" Letter, Shay Seaborne relates her experience with an overzealous official and how knowing the law and being polite but firm is often all it takes to educate local officials. A "must read" for new homeschoolers!
