I'm curious to know....

By "Teaching requirements", are you referring to teaching credentials, such as an elementary ed. degree, or do you mean a certain level of education in general?

 

For example, if you have current teacher certification in Virginia, you don't have to submit test scores, curriculum etc. But if you don't have at least a HS diploma or GED, you must enroll in a correspondence type school, I think.

 

In VA, it depends on your county how much documentation is required. One county, I sent in a copy of my college diploma once and that was good enough. Where I live now, I have to submit it each year.

 

Other states (Texas, for example) don't require notification or proof of educational achievement.

i meant either having a high school diploma/ged or a general college degree.

i see a few states require parents to have at least a diploma and i saw that wa state, for example, requires 45 college credit hours. i was just wondering, if you have to turn in a copy of, for example, your high school diploma if the state requires you to have one.

45 credit hours in Washington state is just one option. The other option is to take a course, either by attending a conference in person, or by listening to the audio tapes of said conference and doing a few writing projects to show that you understand the material.

 

In neither case, however, does one have to show 'proof' to anyone.

yes there are some. i'm not exactly sure how many total, but i know georgia and north carolina require a high school diploma or ged.

 

I live in GA and this is true. However, the law doesn't say anything about proving it. I've homeschooled in two counties and I've never been asked about it. I only turn in an Intent form and monthly attendance forms, which are just X's in a box to show we "did school" on that day. We are not required to show any other documents and cannot be forced to do so.

I am in Virginia and hs under a popular option in the hs statute wherein I'm supposed to provide a copy of my high school diploma. I have no idea what happened to it, so I submitted a copy of my high school transcript instead, which was accepted.

 

Under this hsing option, VA will not accept a GED. You can still hs if you have a GED, however, you have to choose a different option under the hs law and provide some other type of documentation (for example, two options would be to request a religious exemption to homeschool, or use an "approved" curriculum).
