Report Cards Not Required

Sharon Dunmore, Coordinator of NonPublic Schools for the District of Columbia Public Schools, recently sent a letter to a member family asking them to submit an assurance of consent, a home schooling application, and a report card or standardized test results.

All rules for home schooling in the district were suspended on August 30, 1991, and no formal regulations have been adopted in the interim. Many families voluntarily provide a curriculum list and assurance of consent form to school officials. However, under most circumstances, a family should not submit report cards or standardized tests. Home School Legal Defense Association members should contact our office if they have any questions.
