There are several things that you have to remember when you are ready to find a home school teacher. The most successful and developed cooperatives begin to look quite a bit like schools, with an adult teacher in the front lecturing to rows of students sitting quietly at desks, sometimes hiring experts to teach advanced subjects like calculus, foreign languages, or physics.
However, if at some point in the future the student enrolls in a conventional school, the principal of that school will then determine to what grade level the student will be assigned in that school and whether or not the student’s home school transfer credits will be accepted.
A qualified, neutral test proctor must administer an approved test before August 15th at the end of grades 3, 5, 8, and 10. If your child has never attended public or private school, the first test must be completed prior to the end of grade 3 and continue to the end of grades 5, 8, and 10. If your child was withdrawn from public school, they are exempt from testing for 18 months; students then follow the standard testing schedule.
