Within the last couple of years I took my 11 yr old girl out of the Bryan County school system. She was only in the elementary school, but was not receiving the education to accommodate her brain. I mean while the class was catching up for the entire year, my child was visiting classrooms, reading to kids, helping out in the library, etc. Which really started to make me concerned after a couple years of this. Thinking what is she learning? She could be advancing, but when I asked, they assured me she was learning. Well After seeing her place 2nd in nation for multi years in a row and have post high school average since primary school and never advance , just waiting on her class. I got upset...other kids were receiving rewards for minor things and my kid had successfully read every book in the library and tested, but never any real moving her educational level up....Well I have started her in high school algebra classes with the GVS online system. and have needed better hardware to accommodate her learning.

Does anyone know to obtain charitable help for equipment and material for home school children in the state of Ga.?
I am a single mom of 4 and this is very important to me.
Thanks,
Jenny

Default Homeschooling...

In Florida we have free school online. It is called Florida Virtural School. I believe that Georgia has the same thing. It is monitored by teachers, but I believe your child can go at her own pace.

Florida, and many states, have a program using Calvert curriculum. It is free too. Here are the sites for Georgia Virtual School and Calvert Connections;

http://www.gavirtualschool.org/
http://www.connectionsacademy.com/state/home.asp?sid=ga
Within the Connections Academy site, you'll be able to click on samples of the classes. The teacher's lessons give you step-by-step guidelines in teaching. Some of the work is done online, too.

You can also just buy your child a math book , English book and the rest can be done through the library.

Check with your local library, they have contact numbers of homeschool moms and groups that you can join to get help and information.

Here are some great sites for starters:

Good luck!! Karen... who someday will be living in Georgia
