How to Keep High School Records

Did you keep records in one big folder or did you keep each subject's records in it's own folder?   Where did you keep the transcript?   Or the things that didn't fit into a folder?
~ Diane in Oklahoma


Dear Diane,
I had one three-ring binder for each child, and used a new one for each year.  That allowed me enough space to have records for every class, and keep samples for each class as well. I kept the transcript on the front page of the binder.  Then I included the things required by state law.  Then I kept a divider for each class that I intended to teach.  Behind that divider was one piece of notebook paper.  That is where I would write test grades, or the subject of their writing.  Behind that paper, I kept a sample of their work.  Sometimes a math test, a lab report, a worksheet or a written page. I didn't keep daily work, just something that was important for each class.  That was just my record keeping system, I did have assignment sheets that I handed to my children.  I kept a copy of the assignment sheets in the back of the binder.

I have a short YouTube clip on keeping records that might give you a smile!

  • Homeschool High School Geography

    Geography is one area of social studies. Colleges are often specific about what they want to see for high school social studies, including American history, world history, economics, and American government. Since economics and government are often just half-year classes, together they take only one year.
