Oregon Guidelines For HOMESCHOOLING
1.0 – 3.11……Oregon Department of Education Homeschool - Q&A webpage link
4.0 CREDITS, RECORDS, DIPLOMAS, INTERSCHOLASTIC ACTIVITIES, ETC.
4.1 If home-school students return to their public school, is that school required to accept credits for homeschool education? Oregon law allows school districts to develop policies and procedures to review a home schooled student’s transcript and/or work samples to determine if credit can be awarded. Districts are not required to award credit for homeschool work. Therefore, the acceptance of high school credit earned in a home school program is determined by local district board policy. OAR 581-021-0210
OAR 589-007-0400, General Educational Development Program and Certificates of High School Equivalency states in subsection (7)(b)(A)(ii) that "the Education Service District must certify to authorized Oregon GED Chief Examiner that the applicant is exempt from compulsory school attendance” because the student is being home schooled as provided in ORS 339.030 (1)(c and d).
The ESD must be an approved GED option site to certify that 16 and 17 year old students are eligible to test. The ESD/Parent Assurance Form and the GED Testing Authorization Form, which are provided by the ESD, are both required to certify to the authorized Oregon GED Chief Examiner that the applicant is exempt from compulsory school attendance and eligible for GED Testing.
