Bondurant-Farrar Testing Letter Sows Confusion

Important items to consider before taking tests offered by the
district.

Dear HSLDA Members:

Many homeschool families in the Bondurant-Farrar area received a
letter recently from the school district offering testing for
homeschooled children. However, because the letter failed to mention
important facts, some families were left feeling confused.

You are not required to respond to the school district's letter at
all. But as you decide how and whether to respond to this letter, keep
these items in mind:

> If your child is under a supervising teacher, no year-end assessment
is required at all.

> For children not under a supervising teacher, an appropriate
portfolio review can be submitted rather than a standardized test.

> The mere fact that you receive a letter from your school district
offering testing for your child does not mean your child must be
tested.

For an accurate and reliable explanation of all rules that apply to
testing, year-end assessments, baseline testing, etc., visit the
websites of HSLDA or the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators
(NICHE).
