TEA posts correspondence regarding Home Schools

Yesterday, TEA posted a "To The Administrator Addressed" letter that outlined policy regarding home schools.  

1.  Schools who use Leaver Code 60 only need as documentation a signed and dated letter from a parent or guardian that a student is being schooled at home.  It is not necessary to receive a letter of this type each year, nor are the parents required to appear in person.  Parents also do not have to present curriculum for review.

2.  Students transferring from a home school are to be treated in the same manner as students transferring from unaccredited private schools.  The awarding of credit may be determined by curriculum review, student work, or appropriate assessments.  When using assessments, the passing standard should be no higher than the standard required of students transferring from unaccredited private schools, and the letter gives more detailed guidelines.

TEA's Home School correspondence is posted below for convenience.
