Completion Report

Dear ACPEQ members and friends,

Reminder

You must demonstrate to the Minister that your learning project is being implemented and that your child is progressing according to his or her abilities and learning project.

Submission of the Completion Report

As stipulated by the Homeschooling Regulation in section 16, you must provide the Minister with a completion report by June 15 after the beginning of the implementation of your child’s learning project.

Parents must send the Minister a written final report on their child’s progress by June 15 after the beginning of the implementation of the learning project. For example, for a learning project starting on September 30, 2018, the final report on the child’s progress is due on June 15, 2019.
(Homeschooling – Questions and answers – Monitoring and homeschooling – What steps should parents take if they choose to homeschool their children for the 2018-2019 school year?)

The completion report demonstrates the progress your child has made since the mid-term report.

You may use this Completion Report Template. Please refer to the Guide for further information.

Evaluation

The Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur is responsible for monitoring homeschooling. It receives the notice sent to the Minister, examines the child’s learning project and ensures that the requirements concerning the implementation of the project and the evaluation of the child’s progress are met. 
(Homeschooling – Questions and answers – General questions – Who should parents contact about homeschooling? What are the roles of the Ministère and the school boards? )

The options for evaluating your child’s learning progress as presented in section 15 of the Regulations are:

  1. an evaluation by the competent school board, including an examination by the school board;
  2. an evaluation by a private educational institution;
  3. an evaluation by the holder of a teaching license;
  4. an examination by the Ministry;
  5. a portfolio.

Information and request for collaboration

Dear ACPEQ members and friends,

We would like to ask for your cooperation and inform you of the latest developments in our association.

On the one hand, families have submitted their learning project on September 30th. We know that some families have already been contacted by Ministry or School Board officials. We would appreciate your feedback on this first contact with these representatives. Also, if you have questions or doubts about any aspects of this contact, please let us know. This information will be very useful for us as we evaluate the current procedures, and will help in the work to be done by the Advisory Board. Please contact patboileau@acpeq.org.

We are also pleased to inform you that several people have agreed to become more actively involved with ACPEQ. We gratefully thank the following for their availability:

  • Alexandre Gauvin (Lévis) who will act as Webmaster
  • Alexandrie Verfaillie (Québec) who will coordinate support group leaders
  • Julie Charest (Mirabel) who will support the work of the Advisory Board
  • Marie-Line Bouchard (Saguenay) who will support the work of the Advisory Board

We are still looking for volunteers who can support the Advisory Board in its mandate. This consists of working in a sub-committee on different themes (approximately 20 themes) for the development of the Good Practices Guide.

We are also looking for volunteers who are willing to be responsible for specific areas at ACPEQ’s annual conference, including the Children’s Program and the Vendor Hall. If you are interested, please contact Sylvie Crasci, our Conference Coordinator, at congres@acpeq.org or fill out our Involvement form.

In closing, we would like to remind you that those involved in supporting ACPEQ in one way or another are invited to attend our annual Leaders’ Get-together on November 3rd in Longueuil. We would like many to be in attendance since representatives from the Ministry of Education will be present.

Thank you for your support through your involvement and prayers.
