Three (3) – Considerations to ensure your high school student’s transcript and ranking info. is ready by May 31 UCHU deadline

It’s getting close to that time of year when UCHU – AA will be looking to receive final grades for high school students who are members of the accountability association.

May 31 has been stamped as the day to turn in all final grades for the purpose of class rank and transcripts. This is not SC law but UCHU-AA’s requirement as mode of operation.

Not all of the members of UCHU with high school students desire to have their transcripts completed by Me. By law, transcript completion by me is not a must. It’s a service that I provide.

However, all high schooling families are asked to submit course and grades (rather they’ve purchased the high school package or not) for the purpose of the ranking form that I must submit to the Commissioner of Higher Education by mid June for students qualifying for Palmetto Fellows.

Often parents inquire of me what they should do if they’ve not completed homescholing school by May 31 thus not having the needed information to submit to me.

transcript reporting

Well, if this is the case there are a few things you can consider. Here are THREE considerations to ensure your high schools student’s transcript and ranking is ready for UCHU’s May 31 deadline:

  1. Consider giving your student 1/2 a credit and the grade earned at that point of the required UCHU deadline.  The other 1/2 a credit and grade can be put on the transcript the next year. Certainly by May 31 your student should be more than half way through that current subject. For example if the student currently is studying Algebra 2 but has not quite completed the course by May 31 submission deadline to Me, no worries. On the transcript give 1/2 a credit and the current grade for that portion of study. Then next year add the other 1/2 a credit and the second half of the grade for that student. The next homeschool year you may report Algebra 2 and Geometry on the same transcript. This is ok! Just as long as all of the desired or required maths are reported on the transcript.
  2. Leave that entire course off the transcript until the following year. While it may appear that the student didn’t study a math that year on the transcript just indicate an ‘I’ for incomplete. Then the next year add both completed maths on the transcript at that time with the completed grades earned.
  3. If 80% of the curriculum is complete then provide the final grade of the course at that time. Required course completion is understood to be at least 80% of the course curriculum. You can always continue to finish up the curriculum after the May 31 deadline but at least you have a final grade to submit. However, 80% curriculum completed is sufficient. To clarify I’m not ‘suggesting’ only completing 80% of your curricula.

Note that all Option 3 accountability associations operate differently. Be sure to check with your Option 3 accountability association if UCHU is not your legal covering.

Additional note, it is not required by law that your Option 3 Accountability Association completes your student’s transcripts. Parent generated transcripts are absolutely permitted.

Final note, while May 31 is the deadline for grade submission for UCHU this is not a date set by South Carolina Option 3 law nor a date that all associations adhere to.

If you have more questions do not hesitate to ask away. I’d be delighted to hear from you.

Monday’s Message: Why Put Your Children in Public School?

“Why Put Your Children in Public School?” is the question on the table for Monday’s Message.

As I share in this week’s video it is something that I’ve been pondering for about a month. I’ve not settled on a sure answer yet. Haha!

I’m even considering visiting our local schools to see what I think. (Yes, I really did say it. Lol.)

Viewing my video you will be able to see my thought process and the concerns that I am dealing with. Which are real, real, real!

Monday’s Message: What is your *WHY?* (video message)

Think of something that you have a conviction in your heart to do; or something you know that you must do because of it’s importance; or something you feel the Lord has called you to.

Once you think about it then think of the *Why?* behind the reason you do it or must do it.

If the *WHY* can be determined and focused upon then this *WHY* will be the driving force for you doing what you do.

Monday’s Message: Perspective! (video)

Do you realize that your PERSPECTIVE greatly affects how you see things?

PERSPECTIVE greatly affects the POSITIVE view point that we can have on a possibly GOOD situation.

Or homeschooling regime.

Our perspective can often be diluted, shaped and/or created by those around us.

Especially if we tend to *compare.*

Especially if we place great demands on ourselves.

Especially if we tend to see life through a glass that is *half full.*

Choose today to take captive of your PERSPECTIVE to CREATE the positive.

To create the good.

To create great expectancy.

To create….yep create the outcome that you desire and are believing.

Take captive ANY AND ALL thoughts that try to sway you from the POSITIVE and the HOPEFUL outcome.

Scripture teaches us the following:

2 Corinthians 10:5New International Version (NIV)

“5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

AND

Proverbs 18:21

New International Version
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

So choose to day to take control of your PERSPECTIVE.

Change it.

Change it for the positive.

Change it for the good.

See through the eyes and lenses of the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

Things Improve Over Time (video)

If you are new to homeschooling please keep in mind that time is on your side.

With anything it takes time to get better. I understood this lesson very well while take my son out to practice driving. 🙂

Be patient and watch how over time: days, weeks, months and  years……you WILL get better in your homeschooling. You will not be perfect but you will be better than when you first started. 🙂

Just keep Driving!

Serving You and Yours,

Angela Perry
