Re: When-ish do you finish school year? And have your child evaluated or tested?

We roughly follow the local schools, which is the day after Labor Day to mid June. We've only done testing once or twice, but I think we do it around April.

Re: When-ish do you finish school year? And have your child evaluated or tested?

We are doing year round schooling with likely 4 day weeks in the summer-fall for ease of picking at the farm one day a week. I don't even really have a change over month as I just changed his science, and his history is 1 week off from his english. Math is several weeks off from either english or science. So when we get to it, we will change over.

We are in a "don't ask, don't tell" state so we don't have any reporting to do and my son gets MASSIVE test anxiety so I don't think I will be doing any standardized testing unless something changes. Obviously when he gets to high school we will re-evaluate this stance.

We start at the beginning of September and finish by the end of May. We are not required to test in our state. Right now (partway through first grade) I don't feel that testing on my own is necessary as I am aware of how she is doing. In the future I may opt for testing.

Our school year starts and ends in mid July. We school year round and take breaks when we want to. Testing isn't required here until 3rd grade, and we will probably test with a local group that offers it to other homeschoolers in the area. We are not required to submit results though, just to have them take the tests.
