Is this your year to have a graduate? Or, maybe next year?
You will want to make sure you get all your record-keeping, transcript, and graduation needs done in a timely manner.
You will need to close out your student’s records by preparing a transcript of their grades. A transcript is a more formal form of record-keeping. The majority of homeschooling families use transcripts for college enrollment for grades 9-12. Transcripts typically include but are not limited to: classes you completed, when you completed them, and grades for each class completed, along with a grade point average (GPA), extracurricular activities, any accomplishments, standardized testing scores, and volunteer work. The transcript becomes a legal document in the state of Texas once the parent/guardian who is homeschooling the child signs and dates the transcript. It is recommended that you have the transcript notarized after the completion of the 12th grade and store it in a safe place.
A great way to recognize the hard work of your student is with an official diploma. They can keep it as a reminder that good things come from perseverance and dedication, and chances are their future employer may need to see it!
