(video) The question: To follow the public school grade state education standards or not to follow the public school grade state education standards?

When I first began homeschooling in Virginia the state standards for education were my life line.

I went to the Virginia Department of Education and located their state education standards FOR EACH GRADE LEVEL.

Unsure of what my children needed to learn and unsure of the curriculum I should use I began using their guidelines and the knowledge I knew along with paper and pencil.

And our homeschooling journey was on the way.

Later that year I learned of Abeka and included that into our studies.

My oldest then turned four years old and would use Abeka for all subjects along with her siblings until I was able to cut the ‘apron strings’ of the state standards.

More experienced, I only choose a few subjects from Abeka that I felt were worthwhile and mixed up my curriculum. Oh my!!!

What I was finding is that my children were passing the state standards for education at an alarmingly fast rate while using Abeka. (www.Abeka.com)

In many subjects they were on 3rd grade level at 4 and 5 years old.

Sooooooo…..I just stuck with Abeka until I expanded my wings to learn about other curriculum and homeschooling resources.

Check out this video release regarding following state standards of education or not to follow them.

Option 3 Homeschooling: Completing Progress Reports (YouTube video included)

For most of you the end of the homeschooling year has come! Yay!!
For others of you the daily homeschooling continues! Yay!!
One thing holds true is that ALL Option 3 homeschooling families must complete a semi-annual progress report. Yay!

Completing your student’s progress report indicates …….well, their progress in all subjects within the schooling year.

Completing one is ……well, not an option!

The Option 3 Homeschooling law indicates the following:

(d) educational records shall be maintained by the parent-teacher and include:

  (3) a semiannual progress report including attendance records and individualized documentation of the student’s academic progress in each of the basic instructional areas specified in item (c) above.

To read the Option 3 law in details click HERE  . Just keep scrolling down until you see Option 3. (you can read about Option 1 and 2 if you’d like)

To see an example of what your child’s progress report could look like click the link below:

>>>click    https://uchunlimited.com/progress-report-examples/   <<< click

For my accountability association, members are to maintain their own record keeping per the law as stated under SC Statute 59-65-47.

In other words…..you don’t have to turn your paperwork into me.

Now be clear on this……some Option 3 accountability associations will require that you turn in this paperwork to them for review.

But I don’t. Yay!!

That means…..you get to follow the laws. And I don’t have to babysit your work. Yay! 🙂

For your viewing pleasure see the below video.

Questions? Let me know!
