House Bill 1571: Relative to Educational Evaluation of Homeschooled Children
Sponsors:
Representative J.R. Hoell
Summary:

HB 1571 removes the current requirement that homeschool parents submit end-of-year assessment results to their participating agency. Rather, parents are required to "maintain" a copy of the evaluation. Furthermore, it provides that the end-of-year evaluation "shall not be used as a basis for termination of a home education program." This is a common sense approach followed in other states such as Minnesota that demonstrates trust for parents.
