Do I need to prove that we completed the “required time” part of the law?

The short answer is yes:

I ask families to provide proof that they will complete their 180 days by June 30. I don’t want them to spend even 5 seconds creating proof for me. Whatever method they use to keep track is good enough for me to believe them. That might be a lesson plan book, a calendar, or a list on a sheet of notebook paper.

The long answer is yes:

  1. The law does not require a supervisor to prove to anyone that they have provided 180 days of instruction (or hours, if that’s what they choose).
  2. The law does require the evaluator to certify that an appropriate education has occurred.
    • Appropriate education is defined in the law as “a program consisting of instruction in the required subjects for the time required in this act and in which the student demonstrates sustained progress in the overall program.”
