• Home Education Evaluation Information 
     
    Florida Statute 1002.41 outlines the roles and responsibilities for the parent who has chosen to home educate their child. Part of these responsibilities is to file a copy of the child's annual evaluation with our office.
     
     (c) The parent shall provide for an annual educational evaluation in which is documented the student’s demonstration of educational progress at a level commensurate with her or his ability. The parent shall select the method of evaluation and shall file a copy of the evaluation annually with the district school superintendent’s office in the county in which the student resides. The annual educational evaluation shall consist of one of the following:
    1. A teacher selected by the parent shall evaluate the student’s educational progress upon review of the portfolio and discussion with the student. Such teacher shall hold a valid regular Florida certificate to teach academic subjects at the elementary or secondary level;
    2. The student shall take any nationally normed student achievement test administered by a certified teacher;
    3. The student shall take a state student assessment test used by the school district and administered by a certified teacher, at a location and under testing conditions approved by the school district (please register with the district testing department at least two weeks prior to the assessment date);
    4. The student shall be evaluated by an individual holding a valid, active license pursuant to the provisions of s. 490.003(7)
