Summary as introduced:
Testing of students receiving home instruction. Requires the Department of Education to maintain a list of achievement tests, evaluations, and assessments that may be used to satisfy the requirement thatthe homeschooler's parent annually provide evidence of the student's academic progress.

A technical amendment deletes the definition of "parent," as 22.1-1 already sets forth this definition for the entire Title.
