        work samples to include and can be involved in the process

8.    Allows a way for others to know where your child is and what your child has been working on if

       someone else must take over homeschooling due to sickness, a life change, or an emergency 

9.    Shows concrete proof that you are truly homeschooling, covering all required subject areas and in

       full compliance with the law if officials come knocking

10.  Provides a complete picture of your child’s academic progress and level of ability if you ever must

        put your child back in school
