Important Note: In 2015 the Arkansas Legislature ended mandatory home school testing. Currently, the Arkansas Department of Education’s rules and regulations for home schoolers still contain language about state-mandated home school testing. We expect the Department of Education to remove this outdated language when it approves new rules and regulations for home schoolers. In the meantime, please be aware that the language in the Department of Education’s rules and regulations is incorrect: The State of Arkansas does not require home schoolers to take a state-mandated test.
