HOME Portfolio Evaluations
Maine law requires homeschoolers who have filed letters of intent to homeschool to submit the results of assessments, annually, to both the local superintendent's office and the Maine Department of Education in Augusta at the end of each school year, no later than September 1.
Homeschoolers of Maine (HOME) provides a convenient method for annual assessment, which fulfills the requirements of our homeschool statute.
