Home School Testing Information (Covid-19) from the Oregon Department of Education:
In working with our Legal Director, we decided to wait until May to present our rule change to the State Board regarding the August 15 deadline for home school testing. Asking for the extension in May (5/22) will allow for more time for testing (extension of the deadline to November, rather than October).
Given the extraordinary circumstances, we are confident that the rule change will be accepted. I will send out an official answer when I have it.
We are working on this and hope to have a solution next month.
Oregon Revised Statutes require ESDs to provide registration services for students not enrolled in public or private school, but for whom parents have chosen home schooling. The WESD provides a centralized registration process for students residing within the 21 school districts throughout Marion, Polk, and Yamhill Counties. IMPORTANT: Effective July 1, 2016, Oregon Senate Bill 321 will change the compulsory age of attendance from 7 to 6 years old. Beginning in the fall of 2016, registration of home school students is required for children ages 6 through 18. If your child turns 6 after September 1, you are not required to register until the following school year. Parents who choose to home school their children must comply with the student registration requirement, which may be completed by using the ' Home School Registration & Enrollment' link to the left.
