Attendance must be reported at the end of each month, no later than the 5th of the following month. This requirement protects your child from truancy allegations. The board of education may request attendance data from PRS as often as once per month. Attendance forms must show attendance of at least 172 days per school year to satisfy Colorado law.
Note: If you are registering mid-year, you may enter prior homeschool attendance starting from the beginning of the year, or simply record attendance for the remainder of the year. In this case, the 172-day requirement is assumed to be met if your records show approximately 17 days per month.
Grades must be reported at the end of each semester, no later than January 15th and June 15th. (Does not apply to kindergarten students) The report card form provides drop down menus for entering courses to be graded, as well as the option to add your own course names. Student report cards must demonstrate that the “basic academic instruction” requirements are being met. You are not required to cover every required subject during every semester, but each should be shown during the school year.
Summer session grades may also be recorded for families that homeschool year round. Grades may be reported as Pass/Fail or Excellent/Satisfactory/etc. High school grades should be entered as letter grades corresponding to the grading scale provided. This will allow the student’s GPA to be calculated properly. Important reminder: Families are responsible for making sure that high school students are on track to complete all state requirements for graduation.
FAILURE TO REPORT
Attendance is verified monthly and grades each semester on their respective due dates. If any required information is missing, families will receive a reminder via email, including a notice of pending dis-enrollment if the data is not entered within 14 days. If for some reason, you are not able to bring your student(s) records up to date within 14 days of this notice, please contact PRS for assistance.
PRS does not require testing or assessments. If you choose to test, you may record results in your account for each student. Curriculum descriptions are not required, but may be submitted with student grades if desired.
