Record Keeping from Grade 1 through Graduation

Diane Allen actively homeschooled for 23 years and graduated three students into college. Imagine her surprise when she learned she had made several common mistakes in maintaining her student’s valuable homeschool records. After talking with many college admission offices, military recruiters, FBI agents and verification services she revised her graduate transcripts and prepared a proper permanent academic record. In this workshop, she shares her mistakes and how to prevent future complications as she outlines the Basic Rules of a Record Retention for homeschool students.

Diane Allen currently works as an educational consultant, speaker and writer after homeschooling for 23 years, serving the homeschool community and serving as a past director of the DNPE (2016-2018). Having been a classroom science teacher, a homeschool mom, support group leader, test administrator and director of a government agency, she has a broad view of educational issues. She and her husband graduated three children from homeschool, serve at their church and generally enjoy the benefits of being grandparents.
