Congratulations on completing a year of homeschooling! You have finished school, now what has to be done in order to be ready for your summer break?
Many states require some type of evaluation at the end of the year, whether this is testing using a nationally normed test, or having a certified teacher, such as myself, review academic samples of schoolwork.
