19-20 Home School Testing:
The State Board of Education has approved the temporary rule change to extend the deadline for home school testing this year to November 1, 2020.
Families with students who participate in interscholastic activities and need to be tested annually to maintain eligibility may present alternative forms of evidence to demonstrate satisfactory progress (portfolio, collections of evidence). The August 15 deadline still applies to students establishing or maintaining eligibility.
Information about Home School Credits:
4.1 If home school students return to their public school, is that school required to accept credits for homeschool education?
Oregon law allows school districts to develop policies and procedures to review a home schooled student’s transcript and/or work samples to determine if credit can be awarded. Districts are not required to award credit for home school work. Therefore, the acceptance of high school credit earned in a home school program is determined by local district board policy.

4.3 Will homeschool students receive a high school diploma?
No. ESDs do not award diplomas to home schooled students nor do high schools generally award diplomas to home schooled high school students. Parents may, however, contact their local high school regarding local district policies, if any, on accepting credits toward a public high school diplomas, participating in graduation, and other related matters.
