I have a question for you. Last year, Katie's sophomore year, she spent only 28 hours on Spanish. This summer she added about 15 more, for a total of 43. What can I do with these hours, since they don't add up to a half credit? Would it be alright to assign no credit for the sophomore year, and use these credits toward the junior year? We could even try to achieve an entire credit for the junior year, using these 43 hours toward that goal. Does that work?

Hi, I have a similar situation. My question is if my daughter takes the SAT subject test, and gets a good score, does the high school have to accept that as 2 or 3 credits, or is it state by state? Can I find any rules somewhere that I can take to the school? Thanks.
Good question. It does vary from state to state, and school to school. Your school district should have their rules of acceptance posted online, and most universities do too. Lee talks about homeschool laws in this article: Know Your State Homeschool Law
