Evaluations with Grade Level – Going Back to School – A Proof of Promotion Document
If you need to enroll your child in a formal school, then an Annual Evaluation for the Home Education, and a Proof of Promotion document for the formal school registration, are required. The Proof of Promotion is a document completed and sign by a FL Certified Teacher that proves Grade level most recently completed, and the grade level that the student is able to enter in the formal school. The Proof of Promotion document is what the school requires to register and place your child in the correct grade.
Legally, an Annual Educational Evaluation for a Home Education student does not require a grade level to continue home educating. To determine the grade level for the Proof of Promotion document, for school registration, the certified teacher must review much more current work that demonstrates progress and mastery in the grade level just completed.
For example, if your child is going into 7th grade at a school, you will need to provide work samples and proof that your child has made progress in all core subjects with mastery at the 6th grade level.
To obtain a Proof of Promotion document, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A minimum of 8 work samples for each of the 4 Core subjects.
- The samples must be from throughout the year, and a substantial amount of current work, from the end of the year.
- Photos of the textbooks and materials used that show the grade level.
- Fill out the Evaluation Request form
If your child used an online curriculum, please provide the parental login information so we can log in and see the progress, grades, and grade level of the work. In the case of FLVS you can download and send the Unofficial Transcript.
The fee for the Proof of Promotion document is $20 in addition to the final Annual Educational Evaluation ($37) required for the county Home Education personnel, A total of $57. Paypal adds a $2 processing fee.
