You should purchase all the utensils they will need such as books, pencils, sharpeners, etc. After all, the room with the computer is now the "school room". Check their homework every night to make sure it is getting done.
Well, depending on which virtual program you are using, the resources may or may not be included, such as a school computer to use at home, text books with work books and answer keys, etc.
Other than that, make sure that you have a quiet corner to put the "school desk", where your child can be seen easily yet be unobstructed to do work. Be active with the teachers online, and ensure that you're checking regularly.
It can be intimidating at first, but, once you learn the system, it's really not so bad... Remember when e-mail was a foreign concept? Relax, enjoy the extra time with your kids, and you get to add special extras in there, such as home economics or horticulture as an extra activity.

I personally feel that to require children to go to school against their wishes or the wishes of their parents, under penalty of going to jail or losing their children, is involuntary servitude, which is prohibited by the constitution. As it stands, even parents who chose to home school are...

Is school (for children) a waste of time and money?Thinking back to elementary, middle, and high school I can remember very little that I have actually needed to know outside of basic math and reading.
