I have been getting several inquiries about homeschool assessments (portfolio reviews) this year and thought I would share some things with you.
Do I need to have my child assessed? No, you do not need to have an assessment done this year if you are going to continue homeschooling next year. This requirement has been waived for the 2020-2021 academic year. However, if you would like to do this, I am happy to do it for you.
Are you meeting in person or online this year? I am meeting everyone virtually via Zoom. You can sign up for a free account by going to zoom.us
How do I schedule an appointment? You can sign up using an online scheduling website. It will sync to your calendar and send you a reminder of your appointment. https://calendly.com/schoolmarmohio
What should I send to you for the portfolio? If you follow the Home Education Notification Form that you submitted to the superintendent it has all of the subjects listed. Please send me samples of the beginning and the end of your student’s school year. This can include workbook pages, a written story, videos, pictures, or anything that you feel would show what your student has done this year to show progress has been made. For subjects that you do not have physical documentation, write a brief descriptive paragraph of what you did. Example: We watched a video on volcanoes, discussed how eruptions occur and damage that is created, and read various books about geology and volcanoes.
How do I send work to you? There are three ways to do this:
Option 1: I will send you a family folder through Google Drive and you can upload samples of work any time prior to our appointment.
Option 2: You can drop off work to my house or mail me copies of work that you don’t need returned. If you are choosing to do this, then please send me an email.
Option 3: Use Dropbox or send me a file via email.
What is the cost? My fee for one student has not increased in many years and I know family’s budgets are tight, so I am offering a discount if you have multiple children.
Fees for 2021
1 student $40.00
2 students $75.00
3 students $102.00
4 students $132.00
5+ students $155.00
Have a great week! ~Lisa~
