Don’t forget! If you submitted a Notice of Intent and were homeschooling under the home instruction statute for the 2009-2010 school year, annual evidence of progress is due to your local school division superintendent by August 1, 2010.
There are two ways to satisfy this requirement:
- Option (i): Scoring in or above the 4th stanine on any nationally normed standardized test.
- Option (ii): Other form of evaluation or assessment which allows the superintendent to make a determination that the child is achieving an “adequate level of educational growth and progress.”
For more information about these options, please see the VaHomeschoolers Evaluation and Testing Information page.
Your Notice of Intent for the 2010-2011 school year can also be submitted with your evidence of progress, although it is not officially due until August 15, 2010. Many homeschoolers prefer to send these in together to simplify the process.
As always, if you have any questions about what is required, VaHomeschoolers is here to help. You can call our toll-free helpline at (866) 513-6173 or email our helpdesk at info @ vahomeschoolers.org.
