With home schooling, the parent or someone of the parent’s choosing assumes responsibility for the education of the child. The teacher and school no longer assume responsibility for planning, instruction, and assessment. Work should be tracked and show alignment to the curriculum for what we hope will be an eventual return to the public system in our district.

In the event the student wishes to return to school, they will be placed in the age-appropriate classroom for the grade level or at a grade level that best meets their academic needs as determined by the school system and in cooperation with the family. Assessments may help in determining this placement. For high school level re-entry, you would need to connect with your zoned school’s guidance dept for appropriate equivalencies.
Students finishing grade 12 in homeschooling do not receive a NB high school diploma.
