Massachusetts Homeschool Summary

If you are homeschooling in the state of Massachusetts, you should know that each school district varies concerning their policies for homeschooling. Please check with your local district to see what is required of you.  

In many cases, the superintendent or school committee requests assessments to ensure educational progress. Parents normally have two choices:

1) Standardized test results.

2) An alternative form of assessment. This may consist of progress reports, dated work samples, a portfolio review, an assessment by a certified teacher of the parent’s choice, or another method agreed upon between the parents and the superintendent or school committee.
