Setting up a homeschooling website involves applying for the necessary permits, purchasing needed equipment and software and marketing the homeschooling business. Those running websites and businesses catering to homeschoolers must be aware of legal requirements and local regulations regarding education.
Homeschooling websites may choose to provide lesson plans to homeschoolers, create games and tutorials to be used in homeschooling, provide tutoring services or child care, or provide consulting services. While a homeschool website may not require licensing or permits, local boards of education are likely to impose requirements on any homeschooling business. A homeschooling business may need a business license and must fulfill child safety and health requirements.
