Recordkeeping can be a valuable tool for various reasons, such as college entrance requirements and scholarship opportunities, or for future employment opportunities. Home school records are used to document your child’s academic and extracurricular experiences and achievements.

Types of information to retain can include:

  • Grades
  • Curriculum used
  • Subjects mastered
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Volunteer work
  • Standardized testing scores
  • Work samples
  • A reading list

Retaining home school records can also be incredibly beneficial if you are ever involved in a court case or custody situation. Proof of your bona fide home schooling can thwart attempts to deprive you of your rights as a parent.
