8. Can I legally homeschool other people’s children in Kansas or Missouri?

As homeschooling becomes more mainstream, it is becoming more acceptable to compensate a parent to homeschool another family’s child(ren). Since you are the principal of your homeschool, the state considers you ultimately responsible for your student’s education. That responsibility continues even if you sub-contract that out to another teacher or community college, etc.

10. About to withdraw your child from school? 5 things to know 

It’s important to know the steps for a school withdrawal so you don’t disclose more information than you need to. For example, some schools may want parents to sign a withdrawal letter that the school has already written. These are not legally required and we strongly recommend you not sign any pre-formulated withdrawal letters, but come up with your own.
