Ohio Homeschooling Groups & Forums
Ohio Home Educators Network (OHEN) is a regional network of homeschooling families: an inclusive group supporting families of all religious beliefs. You’ll find links to forms here including the Narrative Assessment form that our Certified Teacher signs when completing my son’s assessment. You’ll also find this link to Ohio’s Laws re: homeschooling.
CHESCA: Christian homeschooling group – may have around 100+ families now; lots of organized activities to sign up for and some co-ops offered (for additional fee). [We are members of CHESCA].
Yahoo Homeschooling Groups: Personally, I follow two or three groups here, but there are 600+ listed. If you don’t see one that fits you you can start your own.
