- Attendance Record - No yearly reporting. State law requires that the principal teacher (you) keep up with attendance. Please do so. Everest only requires that an attendance record be turned in when withdrawing from Everest Academy or graduating (or upon request). Everest only needs to know days of unexcused absences from learning. We require 160 days of learning out of 365 possible days. That being said, there should not be any unexcused absences. You keep up with your attendance and only turn it in when you need a transcript generated (at graduation or if transferring). You may keep up with attendance however you see fit. For your convenience, here are two options: Excel Grades & Attendance and Attendance Form.
- Grading - No yearly reporting. Everest only requires that a grading report be turned in when withdrawing from Everest Academy or graduating. How you keep up with grades is a personal choice. Everest only needs grades when you need an official transcript generated. Excel Grades & Attendance, Homeschool Tracker, and Homeschool Skedtrack. *Please note: We do not have an account with these websites. Please sign up as an individual family.
I print off a free daily attendance sheet from Donna Young to keep our required daily record. We don't do grades. I also buy the teacher book at Target in the dollar bin (they have put out the same one for several years now) that has each week divided into six subjects. Instead of subjects I use the three spaces per page for each of my three kids. Then I have nice big squares to fill in what they do each day. I find that is a great way to keep a relaxed/unschooling record of what each child is doing and reading every day.
I bought a $5 teacher's assignment planning book at the local teaching supply store, and it's working wonderfully to keep dates/subjects/material covered straight for progress-report time.
