Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the State Board of Education has approved a temporary rule change to extend the testing deadline for home school students this year to November 1, 2020. If you have questions about your student, please contact LBL Home School office at 541-812-2687, homeschool@lblesd.k12.or.us

The August 15 deadline still applies to students establishing or maintaining eligibility for interscholastic activities. Families with students who participate in interscholastic activities and need to be tested annually to maintain eligibility may present alternative forms of evidence to demonstrate satisfactory progress (portfolio, collections of evidence). For more information about OSAA requirements, please contact your local school or the OSAA office at (503) 682-6722.

There is no opt-out from home school testing. The Student Assessment Bill of Rights (ORS 329.479) permits parents of public school students to opt-out of Oregon’s Smarter Balanced assessment, and does not apply to home school students.
