Finding Support in Montana

One of the biggest challenges of homeschooling in Montana is the spread of the population. Many homes are located quite remotely making it difficult to schedule and participate in homeschooling group activities. This doesn't mean that there are no sources of support. Montana has a state homeschooling association,the Montana Coalition of Home Educators, and several online message boards, email groups, and forums for sharing advice and information.

The following are some of the popular sources of online support and information:

Anyone Can Homeschool in Montana

Montana has very few legal loopholes to jump through in order to homeschool in the state. There are no requirements as to who can homeschool, or what curriculum they must use, and there are no required standardized tests. The only requirements requested of Montana homeschoolers are the following:

  • Keep attendance and immunization records for each homeschooled child.
  • Conduct instruction for a minimum of 720 hours in grades 1-3 and 1,080 hours in grades 4-12.
  • Conduct instruction in a building that meets health and safety standards.
  • Provide an "organized course of instruction."
  • Annually notify the county superintendent of the intent to homeschool.

Parents and families will interpret these guidelines in varying ways and may differ widely in their understanding of how to fulfill each of their requirements.

Choosing Homeschool Curriculum

Montana homeschool law includes the freedom for families to pick and choose their own curriculum based on what works best for their child. However, families new to homeschooling quickly discover a dizzying array of choices when it comes to selecting homeschool curriculum. There is no more popular discussion among homeschoolers on the web than the pros and cons of various homeschool curriculum. After sifting through the homeschool curriculum reviews, most parents end up mixing and matching homeschool programs, trying to create the best match for their child.

Time4Learning's experience shows that there is no single, best homeschool material. Rather than feeling torn between homeschool resources, parents should select a diverse blend of materials and activities.

For families with more than one child, choosing a homeschool program can be more problematic. What works for one child may not work for another. What works for one subject may not work on the next. What works one year, may fall flat the very next year.

Some of the features that make Time4Learning so successful include:

  • Time4Learning appeals to a wide range of learning styles. Our online learning materials are especially well-suited to children who are visual or kinesthetic learners. These children can take advantage of Time4Learning's interactive, multi-media materials.
  • Children like using the computer to learn. It's a convenient, interactive homeschool resource that provides a welcome change each day to paper-and-pencil workbooks and textbook-based lessons.
  • Parents like that it tracks progress and helps children advance by clearly presenting and reinforcing each lesson.
  • Time4Learning's self-paced, modularized lesson plans allow you to move forward and back through the materials whenever you want. You can skip lessons that teach concepts your child has already mastered and repeat those he or she has not. The choice is yours. With Time4Learning, you are always in control.

Time4Learning is proven effective with homeschoolers, has a low monthly price, is easy-to-use, and provides a money-back guarantee so you can make sure that it works for your children!
