When the homeschooled child returns to public school, it is up to the school to make decisions concerning placement of the child and to develop a process to determine what credits will be accepted and what the most appropriate placement for a student is.
- Grades K-8 Examples
A school may choose:
- Age appropriate placement so the student is included with an appropriate peer group. Supports for student learning or enrichment activities can be included as appropriate for the student.
- Placement in a class commensurate with the student’s current level of learning.
- To administer achievement tests consistent with the grade level expected for the student's age so an appropriate placement can be made.
- Grades 9-12 Examples
- A student should be enrolled in the grade level that best aligns with the student’s credit accumulation.
- Parents may submit any and all pertinent materials including, but not limited to, test results, attendance records, and curriculum used by the parent/school.
- Parents who do not have educational records pertaining to student achievement or course completion may need to have their student evaluated in another manner.
- A school may choose:
- To form a committee consisting of appropriate school personnel to make a decision on what, if any, credit will be awarded for work done in the homeschool.
- To administer end of course examinations for all classes which are under consideration.
- To administer approved achievement tests consistent with the grade level expected for the student's age.
- Grades must be assigned to those courses that meet the General, Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors, or Core 40 with Technical Honors diploma requirements.
