The main focus of my consulting services is completing educational evaluations for homeschoolers from kindergarten through 12th grade including special needs students. I also offer other services including testing, transcripts and homeschool monitoring.
COVID-19 Update: The governor signed, Senate Bill 751, which for Homeschooler will waive the 180 day requirement, waive the testing requirements for 3rd, 5th, and 8th graders, and waives the year-end evaluations. (Homeschooling references are found on p. 32 under the code of 1327.1 references - for the 2019-2020 )
I am recommending that students in 7th - 12th grade still be evaluated so you have documentation of the subjects and graduation requirements that were completed this year. If you are planning to do a parent-issued or diploma granting program, you will need evaluations done for the 9th - 12th grades.
I am willing to do evaluations in my home or through online options. Please contact me if you would like to do the online option and I will give you the details. I am also willing to do evaluations through the fall, (except for graduating Seniors) when things are cleared since the evaluations will not need to be turned in to the school this year.
If you don't have a secondary student and still would like to do your evaluation, that is fine. I will be happy to do the evaluation.
If you have any additional questions, please email me.
