Grade Promotion

The parent/guardian, who is acting as principal, teacher, counselor and office person of the home school, makes grade level placement decisions about  their students.

Grade level placement for home schooled students transitioning back into Minneapolis Public Schools are managed in the same manner as incoming transfer students from nonpublic schools.  This transition is most efficient when the following student information has been assembled:

  • Names of materials used for instruction;
  • Work samples of your child's academic achievement;
  • Descriptions of methods used to assess student achievement, including standardized test score information;
  • Cumulative file information including a transcript.

In most cases, your student will receive credit toward graduation for the work that has been completed in your home school.  The public school grade point average is generated only on course work completed in that public school.
