PA HOMESCHOOL EVALUATIONS

We are committed to supporting homeschooling and unschooling families across PA with a straightforward, no-nonsense interpretation of the law and compassionate + supportive approach to end-of-year evaluations.

 

Our team of passionate evaluators has a wide-range of background experience (elementary, secondary, + special ed), and our evaluation services are 100% virtual this year, making it possible for us to support any family across PA. We've got this!

2021-2022

What to expect

Our homeschool evaluation meetings will occur between April-June 2022. Starting in January, we'll release our end of year schedule starting with returning families, then to folks who've joined our email list, and then finally we'll open it to the general public. Families will get to choose the date and time they prefer along with the evaluator of their choice (depending on availability). 

Prior to the scheduled meeting, families will submit a digital portfolio for each of their young people.

 

The portfolio will include:

  • Attendance showing 180 days (a calendar with days checked off)

  • Reading log (a sampling of books, magazines, podcasts, youtube videos, curriculum and other media used for learning)

  • About 10 learning samples (pictures with descriptions is fine!)

  • Standardized Test score for young people in grades 3, 5, and 8.

During the meeting, our evaluators will meet with parents and young people to take a light-hearted trip down homeschool memory lane, facilitate reflection on learning experiences, and start thinking about plans for the next year. 

After the meeting, we'll send your evaluation letter to you via email within 24 hours, and you'll submit it to your school district by the deadline--June 30th. Then voila! Your homeschool year will officially end.
