Frequently asked questions

Does Education Revolution require certain tests or classes for students to move from one grade to another?


No. According to Florida laws, private schools, like Education Revolution, make their own decisions about the educational requirements of its students. In line with the overall philosophy of Education Revolution, there is no required annual testing or outline of required classes needed.




Is there a specific curriculum required?


No. Every child is different. As each student of Education Revolution is led by their home educator, usually a parent, the curriculum used for each child is different. Home educators are free to use the curriculum of their choosing and change it when needed.




So, can I just turn in attendance?


No. Education Revolution requires either the home educator or the student to complete annually a brief two-question form. One question regards what your student learned during the school year, while the other asks what Education Revolution can do to help in the following year. We want to know what we can do to help. If the home educator doesn’t need anything, that’s completely fine—they can simply indicate that on the form. However, if there’s something that you need, and if Education Revolution can help, we will. The form is simply used to see what’s working for students enrolled in Education Revolution and to help plan different ways to support home educators and their students. A helpful school—now isn’t that revolutionary?




About that annual survey: Do I need to provide a portfolio or documents? Is it complicated?


No. Home educators aren’t required to write lengthy responses or turn in documentation. In fact, responses can be written in either a formal or informal style. Most home educators complete it in less than 5 minutes.

You don’t need to let anyone know that your child is enrolled with Education Revolution unless you had them enrolled in another school or you are enrolled in a homeschool program registered with your local school board. If you are transferring from a public or private school, it it vital that you withdraw your student. If you fail to withdraw your child, the school will mark your student absent and you may find a truant officer at your door. If you are withdrawing your child from a public or private school, simply follow their procedures. If you are currently registered with your local county school board as a homeschooler, it is vital that you notify them that you are ending your homeschool program through them. You need to send a letter of termination to the superintendent, or his or her designated home school liaison. You need to state that you are terminating your home school program.




Do I have to tell the place I'm withdrawing from when I'm going?


If you are withdrawing from a Florida school or ending a homeschool program registered in Florida, you are not required to inform them of your plans. Different states have different laws, so if you are not from Florida, consult your local laws regarding the withdrawal requirements. If you decide you want to tell someone your plans, simply state that your child is enrolling in a private school called “Education Revolution.”




Can I receive a copy of my child’s records from the school I’m withdrawing them from?


Yes. When enrolling, indicate that you would like your child’s records from his or her previous school. I will request the records and forward them to you. However, you will be responsible for covering the cost of shipping. Also, I do not mantain backups of these records, so you are responsible for keeping them safe.




I want to transfer my child to Education Revolution, but they already started a grade level at another school. When will my child move from one grade to the next?


Attendance taken by Education Revolution are not connected to grade-levels. Whenever your student is ready to move to acadmic work at a higher grade level, be it around the time the would have moved forward naturally in a brick-and-mortar school, soon, or even later, it is no problem. The home educator that works with the student daily is in the best position to decide when the student is ready to progress, and thus the call of when to do so rest with them.




Does Education Revolution give traditional grades?


No. If grades are produced, they are given by the home educator who conducts the lessons.




Does Education Revolution issue report cards or transcripts?


At the current time we are not offering report card or transcript services.

Education Revolution does not, however, offer refunds if a student withdraws before his or her school year is completed.

Students must be able to provide work samples comparable to expectations of high school seniors in the areas of English/language, math, history, and science.

When the student is ready for graduation, the home educator simply needs to contact us via email to start the process of having his or her student’s graduation recorded.
