When the homeschooled child returns to public school, it is up to the school to make decisions concerning placement of the child. An example of this process might include the following:

Grades K-8: Age appropriate

Grades 9-12: A committee is formed consisting of principal, department chair(s) or teacher for the specific classes in question, and school counselor.

  1. Parents submit any and all pertinent materials including, but not limited to, test results, attendance records, and curriculum used by the parent/school.
  2. The student is administered approved achievement tests consistent with the grade level expected for the student's age.
  3. The student is administered end of course examinations for all classes which are under consideration.
  4. The committee will make a decision on what, if any, credit is to be given for the end of course tests and any work done in the homeschool. 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.
