    Default Can parent administer testing in NY State

    Hey everyone, We live in Ga now but could be moving to NY for a job opportunity soon. My question is, Can the parent administer state testing in NY State? I know the law says that it can be administered by an " other " person. Can the parent be the "other" person? Thank you so much and Many Blessings.

    Hi. I'm not in New York, but I found the New York Homeschool Regulations online. Here's the part that addresses the "who" part of test administration.

    (ii) The test shall be administered in accordance with one of the following options, to be selected by the parents:


    (a) at the public school, by its professional staff; or

    (b) at a registered nonpublic school, by its professional staff, provided that the consent of the chief school officer of the nonpublic school is obtained; or

    (c) at a nonregistered nonpublic school, by its professional staff, provided that the consent of the superintendent of schools of the school district and of the chief school officer of the nonpublic school is obtained; or

    (d) at the parents' home or at any other reasonable location, by a New York State certified teacher or by another qualified person, provided that the superintendent has consented to having said certified teacher or other person administer the test.

    Yes, you as the parent would be considered the "other person"
