STATEMENT OF COMMITMENT

As members of the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS), we understand that SCAIHS believes the foundation of home schooling is built, in part, on the traditional family, established by a marriage between one man and one woman. We understand and agree that we are the persons ultimately responsible for the education of our children.
In keeping with this, we agree to meet the following requirements for the duration of our membership in SCAIHS:

  1. Follow Section 59-65-45 of the South Carolina Code of Laws:
    • • A parent must hold at least a high school diploma or the equivalent general educational development (GED) certificate;
    • • The instructional year is at least one hundred eighty days; and
    • • The curriculum includes, but is not limited to, the basic instructional areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies, and in grades seven through twelve, composition and literature.
  2. Exercise diligence in teaching our child(ren) in a responsible manner.
  3. Plan an appropriate course of study for each student and provide the curricula/materials.
  4. Maintain a written record of school work, activities, and field trips for each student.
  5. Maintain a portfolio of samples of each student’s academic work.
  6. Meet SCAIHS standardized testing requirement (at minimum, every other year from grade 3 – 11), paying any associated costs.
  7. Provide the following in SCAIHS Central:
    • • Course plans at the beginning of the year
    • • Attendance and course progress by January 7th and June 7th (January 7th and May 15th for seniors)
    • • Final grades by June 7th
    • • Standardized test results by June 7th (for applicable years)
  8. Pay the annual membership fee on time, per the SCAIHS Financial Agreement.
  9. Acknowledge that the SCAIHS membership year runs from June 1 through May 31.
  10. Acknowledge that in keeping with South Carolina Code of Laws Section 63-5-30, SCAIHS will release student records to a parent if requested, unless a court order prohibits such release.

We understand that failure to fulfill any one of these responsibilities may result in probationary status for our home school or dismissal from SCAIHS. If dismissed, we understand the financial agreement will be enforced.
