Giveaway for Georgia Homeschoolers!!!

It's that time again . . . . time to start thinking about school!  While many northern families don't start until after Labor Day, early to mid-August seems to be the norm for most southern schools.  We began our official school year on August 15th.  How about you?

If you live in the state of Georgia, make sure you file your Declaration of Intent by September 1st!  Then, those pesky monthly attendance reports will be due the first of each month thereafter. 

Speaking of those attendance reports -- have you ever found yourself scrambling around trying to find a pen that writes so you can fill out your monthly attendance report, then trying to get a copy of it made for your records, followed by searching for an envelope and hoping you have a stamp, so you can get that thing in the mail before the deadline each month???

There is an easier way!

Homeschooling father, Scott Meadows, has created a homeschool-mom-friendly website that allows you to file your Declaration of Intent and monthly attendance records online. Over a thousand families are now using this fast, simple method to simplify their homeschool reporting.

Thanks to the email reminder that you will receive each month in your Inbox, you will never again forget to file your attendance reports! Simply click on the link in the email, and it will take you right to your personalized attendance form, with all normal school days already checked (just un-check any days that you did not actually have school that month). You can then Preview and Send. What could be easier?

You will not only save time, but also gain peace of mind, because you will receive a return receipt (proof that your school district received your forms) and 12 years of offsite backup. And, would you believe that you get all of this for only $1 per month? When you consider the cost of paper, envelopes, printer ink, and postage stamps, you can see what a bargain this is!

I love Homeschoolcompliance.com!  It has taken all the work and stress out of filing monthly attendance reports!  Also, whenever I've had any problems (such as when I moved from one county to another mid-year), Scott Meadows has been extremely helpful and prompt in responding to my emails and helping me resolve any issues.

Now Scott has generously offered a free one-year membership to Homeschoolcompliance.com for one of my Georgia readers!

All you have to do to enter this giveaway is go here to read the top ten reasons for efiling, then come back here and leave me a comment telling me which benefit of efiling most interests you. For an extra entry, share about this giveaway on Facebook, and leave a separate comment.  You can also share about this on your blog for an additional entry! Deadline to enter is Friday, August 19th. I will announce the winner on Saturday, August 20th! Spread the word!!!

I like reason #7, especially since I homeschooled for years and years with the lady supervising us telling us to just mail a couple of reports in at a time...don't waste the stamp on only one report. Now that we have a new regime, I sometimes have trouble adjusting to their desired "mail your report on the 1st of the month or else" attitude.

I like the "no lost paper work" reason. I am usually think that I am organized until I can't find what I am looking for!!

I like "proof". That is the reason I would use it. Proof that they did get it without me going through all the trouble!
