When the Homeschooled Child Returns to Public School

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.
