Cumulative File Requirements
Hello Erin, school marm Faith is here to tell you what should be in your cumulative file!
The California Education Code Requires that a "cumulative record of a pupil's school experience" be kept. To follow are the main components. We keep ours in a large 3" binder for each child.
Hope this helps you to get off to a great homeschool start! "Start- one syllable- s-t-ar-t." Are you thinking like an SWR trainer this week? : )
Love to you!
