Power Points

 


 

 

"The only thing necessary
 for evil to triumph
 is for good men
 to do nothing." 
-Edmund Burke

 

Since graduation requirements change from time to time, even if minor, it's always best to verify the graduation requirements with the county you reside.  Make sure you pay attention to the graduating year the requirements refer to.  Often, county school boards have websites that list the information.

 

 

REMINDERS
 If your child will be 6 years of age by February 1, 2010, send in your Notice Of Intent To Home-Educate. 
Click here for address of your local school board.

The annual evaluation is due one year after submission of your letter of intent.  It is recommended that you send it certified mail, return-receipt requested.

****************************************************************************************************************************
NOTE:
The IOWA Standardized Test and the personal evaluation both meet your year end
home school law requirements.
Computerized results will be mailed to you about 4-6 weeks after testing is completed.

Florida law requires that the parent or guardian of a home-educated child file an annual evaluation with the district school superintendent's office.  The annual evaluation is due one year after submission of your letter of intent.  It is recommended that you send it certified mail, return-receipt requested.

As the parent/guardian you have options in the child's method of evaluation. 

We offer two of those options and a Florida State Certified Teacher administers and/or evaluates each.

1. Individual or Personal Evaluation   or   2. Nationally Normed Student Achievement Tests

As with any standardized testing instrument, the scores provide "a snapshot" of each child's achievements.  They are to be considered in conjunction with teacher observations, portfolio reviews, daily interactions, learning styles and the general knowledge you have about your child in order to gain a complete understanding of the child's academic growth and areas needing remediation. 
Always keep test scores in their proper perspective. 
They are a valuable piece of the puzzle,
but not the complete picture.

Thank you for allowing us to serve your family!
