Testing is optional. If you would like to have her tested the school district offers the test
they give the public school kids. I have never had my kids tested. Now if you plan to put
her back in public school and you do not use an accredited curriculum they can test her
to see which grade she belongs in. And I think when she graduates from high school she
will be required to take a proficiency test. But this may all change in time, for the rules
always change when we are dealing with the school district. I have not graduated a child
yet (4 years to go), so if there is anyone out there that knows differently please fill free to
jump in to this conversation. I'd hate to be leading someone down the wrong path.
I hope this helps.
