Randolph County – In 2005, the county adopted a new policy for homeschool students entering the school system. The new policy requires testing for homeschool students enrolling in public school grades 1 through 12. Test results will determine grade placement. County policy requires each student to pass 80% of the core subjects in order to be promoted to the next grade. Homeschooled students seeking credit for a course required for a high school diploma must pay for and pass a subject mastery exam or an end of course exam; the transcript grade for that course will be the student’s score on the exam. To receive a diploma, a homeschool student must enroll in the public high school, complete the senior year at the school and meet the county’s graduation requirements. Assistant Superintendent Barbara Korn said there were no public comments made on the policy before it was instituted. Call the county board office for a copy of the policy.
