    Hi Crystal, Check out Seton Testing: https://www.setontesting.com/ Choose a test like the CAT (one that doesn't require an administrator). Also, read my FAQ about Testing here before you decide which (if any) test: https://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/

    I’m a new to homeschool parent and I have a first grader...so new on all fronts really. I want to do some bench mark testing to make sure we are on the right track and identify areas we need to work on etc. I was looking at the Iowa assessment test but wanted to ask here if there is a better resource. One other question: with that test, it says it ships to an administrator, I don’t need anything that formal and I’m not even sure if that’s something available in our area. Basically please help those with more homeschool experience. Crystal Corr

    14 Year Old Son Socialization

    Melissa, since you're a member, I recommend that he get involved in my online activities (Field Study Boot Camp, Book Groups, and other things I'll be offering). Students are getting to know each other in the message boards and Zoom room, and the activities give them a common ground to start with. When we do field studies in the parks, families can meet during those (or not... it's up to each family whether they want to meet with others, or physically distance). Warm regards, Dianna

    14 Year Old Son Socialization

    Hello everyone! I have an only child 14 year old son, needing a friend. With the pandemic, I have struggled to keep his socialization in swing this Fall 2020 semester. We have not participated in any CO-OPs this semester and we are struggling with socialization. We are from the Simpsonville, S.C./Fountain Inn area. He doesn't have friends and I was looking for someone who is local that is in a similar situation. I understand we are in rough times with the pandemic, but even if he had a penpal he could write for now (considering the virus) someday he could meet would be great. H

    Band for homeschoolers?

    Beckie, If it is marching band, you may be able to pursue it;however, in our district, Lexington 1, my daughter couldn't participate (or audit) orchestra because it wasn't an elective--it was a graded class. The district manipulated the interpretation of the Equal Access legistlation We even got HSLDA involved and were in litigation for 4 years with no success--just a lot of delays, stalling, mediation (their solution was that we could put my daughter in school and bypass school choice and she could go anywhere she wanted). Good luck!

    Band for homeschoolers?

    We asked middle school band teacher if we could participate in 7th grade band and he responded - he didn’t think we could. No one in admin ever responded when we withdrew.

    Band for homeschoolers?

    Hi Becki, Read through the 59-63-100 Equal Access to Interscholastic Activities section here: https://www.carolinahomeschooler.com/homeschool-faqs/sc-homeschool-law/ This also relates to sports, so if you have proof that the school allows students to continue sports without waiting a year, then you need to bring that up when you talk to the school about this law.

  25. We are in York County SC and being told by the school district that if we switch to homeschool my child can no longer participate in High School band. This feels a little discriminatory to me, since if he played a sport this would be no problem and he would be allowed to continue. Has anyone had experience in this area?

    Sorry, I did it twice. I'm not sure how to delete posts here. Here is my post! I'm in a similar position. I also have an 8 year boy who would have entered GT this year and we are homeschooling due to covid. I also have a kindergarten boy. I haven't had quite as many challenges, but I have gotten a lot of push back about doing work from my 8 year old. He's not like that at school either and in fact, did pretty well with distance learning. It's been challenging. I've started trying to give him more choice in what he does. Like, doing a research project o
