    No educational requirements for parents.

    No standardized testing.

    We are moving from NC where my almost 9 year old son is currently in a private school. We are moving to the Flowood/Jackson area this month and want to put him in a home school till next year. Because the private schools we want him in are booked.What are the requirements for starting late in the school year in MS?
