Probation for Sub-Test Scores
Often, a confrontation will occur because school district representatives don’t fully know the homeschool law. Thankfully, these parents did—and knew to call HEAV for help.
Parents who file a notice of intent are generally well aware that they must provide adequate proof of progress by August 1. For many, this is provided in the form of a standardized, nationally normed test result with a composite score at or above the 4th stanine or 23rd percentile.
A composite score is made up of math and language arts sub-tests. For homeschoolers, the subjects are typically language arts and mathematics and their sub-tests. A score in a particular sub-test can be low, so long as the composite of all scores is at or above the 4th stanine.
Such is the case with many children across the Commonwealth for a variety of reasons. Imagine, then, the surprise of some Virginia county parents when they received letters stating that, based on their children’s sub-test score, they must enroll in public school OR submit remediation and be put on homeschool probation.
The consternation was considerable until someone picked up the phone to call HEAV.
