Homeschool Bill Passes Senate Education Committee
The PA Homeschool bill (House Bill 1013) just passed the Senate Education Committee. The changes made by that committee were very minor, simply a few clarifications of wordings. The bill just needs to get voted on by the Senate, voted on again by the House, and then it would go to the Governor. I expect it to pass and get signed before the November election:
The main provisions are:
1. Parents would no longer need to turn in portfolios, just the evaluation letters.
2. Parent-issued diplomas would have to be recognized by the state.
3. The recognition of homeschool organization diplomas, now a matter of policy, will now be a matter of law.
If it passes, you won't have to turn in your portfolios, just your evaluation letters next June.
Yes, Pennsylvania Homeschoolers will indeed once again be offering our Fall Testing services, traveling across the state. This will be our *last* year to travel 'way East' for Fall Testing-- we will continue a few more years with testing in our region of Western PA.
