9270 - PROCEDURE FOR EDUCATING A CHILD AT HOME

Assessment

The Corporation strongly recommends that the parents maintain a record of the educational program in a home school, including assessment of their child's academic progress, as this information will be useful to a school corporation, should the parents decide to re-enroll their child in a public school. Such an assessment could include:

 

A.

resources and books used in the course;

     
 

B.

courses of study completed;

     
 

C.

the number of hours devoted to each course of study;

     
 

D.

a portfolio of work done;

     
 

E.

examples of tests and test scores;

     
 

F.

standardized test scores demonstrating the student's ability.

Re-Enrollment in School

If a parent/guardian wishes to have his/her child return to a Board school, the parent/guardian must follow normal enrollment procedure described in AG 5463 - Admission of Students from Nonaccredited Schools will apply. Also, placement in grades 1 through 8 and the awarding of credits in grades 9 through 12 will be governed by Policy 5463 - Credits and Placement from Nonaccredited Schools.

A parent/guardian is encouraged to present their student in advance of the proposed enrollment date in order for the placement process to be properly applied and avoid the necessity of a temporary placement.
