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 )
Please Note: Affidavit and Objectives for the 2020-2021 school year needs to be filed by August 1st. The age for filing is now 6 years through 18 years (or graduation). If your child is 6 by the beginning of school (usually Sept 1st), you must file this year. If they turn 6 sometime after the school year begins, then you can wait until next year. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me.
