Determining each student’s academic standing is crucial for proper placement. Placement Tests and student records help counselors in this process, but what if your student was homeschooled and there are no official records?
When you decide to enroll your student in an alternative to public school, whether it is enrolling him/her in an online private school such as Enlightium Academy or taking on all responsibilities yourself in homeschooling, you are cutting yourself off from the educational standard and therefore have additional steps to fulfill. It’s a tradeoff - you have more of a say in what and how your student is learning, and in return you are accountable to the state to ensure that your student is learning the basics.
What is a Verification of Enrollment?
A Verification of Enrollment, also referred to as a Certificate of Enrollment or Proof of School Enrollment, is an official document provided by the school that states the student is enrolled in that school. It can be used by parents to confirm to their state or school district that the student is receiving an education in a public school, private school or homeschool setting.
One of the documents that parents most often have questions about is the intent to homeschool form. From a legal perspective, this form can be one of the most important requirements to homeschool your child, so you want to ensure you fill it out correctly.
