Administrative Guidelines
 

9270 - PROCEDURE FOR EDUCATING A CHILD AT HOME

The Superintendent has established the following guidelines applicable to students enrolled in a non-accredited school or home school who have legal settlement in the Corporation.

Participation in School

A student enrolled in a non-accredited school or home school who has legal settlement in the Corporation may enroll in one or more classes in the Corporation but will not be allowed to participate in co-curricular or extra-curricular activities.

Assessment

The Corporation strongly recommends that the parents maintain a record of the educational program in a home school or non-accredited 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 on a full-time basis. 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/achievement.

ISTEP+

A home schooled student who is enrolled in one or more classes in the Corporationís schools may take ISTEP+ if the parent elects to have the student participate.

Re-Enrollment in School

If a parent/guardian wishes to have his/her child return to a Corporation school on a full-time basis, the parent/guardian must follow normal enrollment procedures described in AG 5463 - Admission of Students from Nonaccredited Schools. 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.
