Homeschooling logistics question

We already homeschool our kids and we are moving onto our boat to live aboard full time. When we lived in a house we had to inform our local school district that we were homeschooling. How does this work on a boat? We plan to move frequently, mostly along the US coasts for now. We no longer have a home school district. For those of you doing this... Do you inform school districts along your routes? Or pick a single school district? Or do you just go and not tell anyone?

Thank you!

Homeschooling logistics question

High school should have an umbrella school, for young ones just go. An umbrella school is affiliated with and credentialed by a given state (bypassing the local school district). Ours was in TN but we cruised in rivers, Bahamas and keys.

In FL itís possible to triple enroll a high schooler into a local school district / home school umbrella / college student (earning 60 college credits for free while simultaneously graduating from high school).

This however does require residency in FL, though there are numerous online courses offered in this program.
