If you homeschool in California, now is the time to file your required paperwork. Every year I have to file an affidavit to homeschool in California, which is called The Private School Affidavit. There is no such thing as filing as a homeschool in this state. Instead you must file as a private school. This is very easy to do, in fact I just filed mine online, answering some questions about how many students I have and then signing electronically. Filing with the California Department of Education is required yearly. Once filed, print a copy for your records and save a copy as a pdf for your electronic files.
