      Jenny can you include a link directly to the page on their site where this appears? Existing link goes to home page, and Search function does not produce anything.

      I tried to sign up at the Barnes and noble store once, I am a homeschooling mom, and they told me I needed some form of credentials.. My state sends absolutely nothing to me stating this, so I was unable to obtain it. Does any one else have this issue? Also, Your link takes us to the actual membership to Barnes and nobles and not the educators link..

      My state does have a declaration of intent at the beginning of every school year (GA) which I print and save the file- I put my printed copy in my coupon file! For states where there is not any communication between the state and homeschool, I’d write up an official looking letter “To whom it may concern” that the following children were schooled at home until further notice, under the tutelage and direction of (parent’s name). Parent then signs over her name and address, and gets it notarized for a $1-3 fee. This might work. My 401K provider notarizes for free.
