Lord Heritage HomeSchool Office Review


HomeSchool Office Review

Hi neighbors,

Recently I was given the opportunity to review the Lord Heritage HomeSchool Office.  This is an online program where you can schedule your homeschooling, keep track of grades, and transcripts.  This is an online homeschool management tool that works with just about any curriculum.

Pricing is $79 annually for a family.  There is a free 30 day trial available, which I highly recommend.   All your students and their records will be in one place.

HomeSchool Office allows you to go in and assign work to your child/student.  Each child can have their own password to access their account and get to their personal assignments.  You are also able to print off schedules.

The entire program is based on POWER.
Program
Order
Work
Evaluate
Report

You can use this thought of POWER as you design and setup your HomeSchool Office.



Program is where you plan.  Decide which direction you are going.  Here you will lay out and design your master schedule.  You can budget what you are able to spend on curriculum.  You will also be able to set up projects.





Order, this is where you actually put your schedule into play.  Input the schedule you have set down, add reminders (extremely helpful) and add in any other scheduled activity reminders, such as sports, art, music lessons.


Work is when your child actually accesses their account and marks off as things are done.  Obviously you can also print the schedule and mark off accomplishments.  You will be able to check in and see what has been done and know what will need graded.



Evaluate includes keeping attendance records, grades, and tracking subject hours for records.  This comes in handy depending on how much your state requires of you.



Report allows you to print off items required to be turned in to the state.  It also allows you to print off for your own personal records and/or transcripts.



Now, let me say here, this is a very organized approach to scheduling, tracking and keeping records of your homeschool.  Unfortunately it is not me.  My schedule is extremely flexible and often changes week to week.  Sometimes we are on the road, or an unscheduled meeting comes up, for me this makes using HomeSchool Office more difficult for me.  I do know many families that homeschool that would benefit from a program like this.  I can see where it makes record keeping so much easier. A parent with older children could easily plan their school schedule, allow the child/children access and then check in to see what has been done and what needs to be looked over or graded.

It does take some time to learn to se the program.  I had to play around a little to get used to it and learn what I could do.  It is just not a good fit for my homeschooling style.  Here I want to remind you though that no two homeschools run the same way.  Please, if you think this will work for you, take time and try their 30 day trial.  Also, take a moment and read what other Crew members had to say.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
