I used this planner to help plan our upcoming school year. It was a little confusing for me at first but I did eventually learn how to navigate most of the options. Keep in mind I am not very gifted in the technology area. This means for most people it should be much easier to navigate then it was for me. If you aren't handy on a computer I probably would not recommend using this program. Homeschool Planet allows you to track attendance, record grades, make a daily lesson plan, keep track of additional resources used and my personal favorite will help you print an official transcript. It allows you to do much more. Several of the options I haven't even utilized yet. With younger kids there is only so much tracking I do...for those of you will older students this program has a lot of benefits.
Even though I was a bit confused to start with once you dive into the program you will be pleasantly surprised at all it has to offer. Affordability is a a great plus because it is just that affordable. You get a 30 day free trial to check out their program and then you can choose between paying $65 per year of a monthly rate of $6.95. In the end I decided this probably wasn't the planning program for me but only because I just don't need something this extensive yet. Once my kids are in middle school and high school this will definitely be something I revisit. I would love to be able to take advantage of all the wonderful features.
