TAKS AND STAR TESTING El Paso
Does anyone know if we (TEXAS) need to make sure these tests are taken? I know TAKS tests are state mandates, they monitor how the schools are doing, but do they need to be done when we home school? Are they a requirement for a high school diploma? There is a new STAR test for those in elementary and middle school, do we need to do these? And how do we if we do?
home school groups
It looks like you have a wonderful support group and a well organized home school organization in El Paso. I found the following link: shn home I think you will find it helpful. When I frist started home schooling it helped me to connect with someone in my area. As far as TAKS....no, you do not have to administer them. If you have a high schooler going to college, he.she will need to take the SAT or ACT and in some cases a GED is required. You just have to do a lot of asking for the specific colleges you are interested in. Hope this helps.
