Some certified teachers say that homeschool students are required to take a standardized test for their annual educational evaluation. NOT!

Some evaluators say that a homeschool student above the 6th grade level must have a several certified teachers evaluate their porfolio work samples, certified in each academic area. For example: a math certified teacher to evaluate the math work samples, and a certified language arts teacher to evaluate the reading/writing work samples, etc. Wrong!
I am shocked! These “evaluators” saying these things are certified teachers that are listed as evaluators on websites by some Florida county school boards!
What is going on? How can some Florida county school boards be so misleading, and why are some certified teachers so uninformed? These certified teachers are giving advice on education! I hate to say, but I must; many of these people (“teachers”) are in the classroom with children, “leading and guiding” them, or they used to be. Now they are advising homeschool parents!
Homeschool students are not REQUIRED to take any standardized test EVER. It is not required by law. The county school board cannot require a homeschool student to take a standardized test when the state of Florida has laws for homeschooling, that clearly state that one option, from among 5 options, to fulfill the annual educational evaluation required by law, is sending the county home education office a standardized test results. That is a option, not a requirement!
You can have a certified teacher give your home educated child a standardized test and send the results to the county home education office for your annual educational evaluation. You can also sign your child up to take the FCAT at a school in your county, if you choose those ways to fulfill the requirement of an annual educational evaluation. Most parents choose option # 1 in the Florida state statute for home education which states a certified teacher is to review the home educated student’s work, and have a discussion with the student. That’s it, period, to complete the annual educational evaluation, for any county in the state of Florida.
