The little birdies have landed…..Report Cards, Transcripts and High School Ranking!!

This is the time of the year when most South Carolina Option 3 Accountability Association directors go into hiding!!!

Hiding out as we compile, calculate and complete dozens upon dozens of transcripts. If not 100s. Plus report cards!!

UCHU-AA has completed all transcripts and will be in the mail tomorrow, Monday, June 11, 2018. I was just shy of 100 transcripts/report cards myself!! With about 60+ report cards still pending.

If I didn’t enjoy what I do this would be a problem.

But because I do….it’s my joy and delight!!

So…..

Tomorrow, Monday, June 11, 2018 in the mail these precious little paper cargo will go.

UCHU report cards and transcripts 2017-2018

This pic includes Senior packages, 9th-11th grade transcripts, middle and elementary report cards.

Those who only had high school ranking complete I will release your student’s ranking if you request it.

Now to start processing all of the 2018-2019 UCHU Membership application!! I’m delighted to see so many returning and lots of new families joining. I am humble and grateful!! (((heart)))

Then after this blitz of transcript/report cards I’ll be focused on ……..

UCHU-AA is well underway with calculating transcripts.

(That would be ME!! ha. ha. ha)

How many is that……well that would be just a little over 100 transcripts, plus report cards AND plus a host of ranking forms.

Where am I majority of my days this week?

Yeah…you’ve guessed it.

Living on my computer.

Though I did take a moment for my weekly datenite with my husband tonight.(sweetness) And before I left the restaurant many of you were contacting me with questions.

Guess what? I love it!!

I love that I’m touchable, reachable and in good relationship with many of you that you will give me a text late at night. ((insert ‘heart’ here))

Well….the deadline is just TWO DAYS AWAY.

Midnight, May 31, 2018 is the cut off to turn in your high school students transcript forms and ranking forms for completion.

If you DON’T make it by deadline….. no worries.

You may still submit your transcript request/report cards after May 31, 2018. They will be minus ranking but will be calculated with your student’s gpa.

If you have any questions and actually need to talk directly with me schedule a time on my virtual calendar.  Choose a day and time that will work best for you. www.calendly.com/uchuthirdoption/15min

Otherwise, email me at UCHUThirdOption@gmail.com

The next few days I’ll be having my rondevous with UCHU-AA members transcripts, report cards and ranking forms. I may not be easily accessible.

I simply adore what I do.

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.
