Anyone else in NY? Can the homeschooler's parent administer the required standardized testing? What if the parent is also a certified teacher within the state? This is the statute to which I am referring:
'The achievement test can be administered by a certified teacher or by another “qualified person.” A certified teacher, a home instruction peer group review panel, or other person can conduct the written narrative evaluation. A parent could potentially administer the achievement test or conduct the written narrative evaluation. However, unless the assessment is administered at the local public school or a registered nonpublic school the parent is to choose the individual “with the consent of the superintendent.”'
I will be homeschooling my 4th grader (as well as kindergartner and preschooler but they aren't required to be tested- lol) and I am a certified teacher here in NY. I know I am more than capable of administering a standardized test, as well as doing so in a completely objective fashion, but will the state allow me?
