YEP! MammaKittyCat is right on! That form is considered "written". I am starting on Year 12 homeschooling in central Ohio, and that's what I've always used. I assume you have a copy of the Option 2 form? If not, let me know and I will get you one.
I might also second what MKC said about turning it in at the last possible moment. It is due on the first day of school, whatever that happens to be for your district. If you send it in too early, they've got time on their hands and could pay very close attention to it. If it's sent in sometime the week before school starts, they're really busy and will just give it a cursory glance (unless there's something glaringly wrong!).
