Homeschool Crew Review: My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping

If you live in a state that requires detailed homeschool records or you love online planners, My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping might be something you’d like to consider adding to your homeschool.  We recently had the opportunity to review the Annual Membership Plan.

 

About My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping

This program let’s you track everything you’d ever want to save or know about your homeschool.  There are several main parts on the menu:

Homeroom.  This area shows the term, attendance by days and hours, classes and lessons completed, events, awards, and reading (you can track what books your child has read this year), extracurricular activities, and standardized tests.

Calendar.  This shows a variety of activities you may have as a family as well as what assignments are due for the next day, week, or month.

Planbook.  This is where you can edit your child’s assignments and mark them as complete, reschedule them, and input grades.

Reports.  Remember Monica from Friends?  Remember how she planned her wedding in a big binder and had it all cross-referenced?  This section is where the organizer in you will delight in bringing out your inner Monica.  There are so many reports that you can generate!  If you have a high schooler, you can even generate your own transcript!

Teacher’s Aid.  Here, you’ll get reminders of documentation you should include in your child’s records, if available.

In addition, you can also copy lessons from child to child, copy a reading log/list, reschedule lessons, and track attendance.

Blog.  My School Year has a blog which details updates and suggestions for using the program including as a way for mom to keep her own reading list, chores, meal plans, etc.  This is truly a multi-functional program!

What I Liked about My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping

This is an amazing program.  I can see where it would be highly valuable as children enter middle school and high school and you want to keep track of all of their accomplishments.  It would also be a very useful tool when creating a high school transcript.

People who love to plan electronically would likely enjoy this program.

Also, since we last reviewed My School Year, they’ve added video tutorials for getting started, which is valuable.  In addition, on each page, there is a help button that pops up with help on the particular page your on.

What I’d Like to See Improved

I’ll be honest, I’m not an electronic planner person.  I much prefer my old school paper and pencil planner, so this planner was a bit overwhelming for me.

My School Year Homeschool Record Keeping offers a $5 per month subscription or a yearly subscription for $50.  If you’d like to try a more organized approach to keeping homeschool records, this planner may be just what you’re looking for.
