Virtual and Homeschool students are eligible to take the National Spanish Examinations. Virtual and Homeschool teachers must make arrangements for their students to take the exam under the supervision of a participating teacher in an accredited institution. This requirement ensures that no one can challenge any student's exam results.
It is the responsibility of the virtual or homeschool teacher to find a sponsoring teacher in an accredited institution (called the sponsoring school). The virtual or homeschool students must take the exam at the sponsoring school when the sponsoring teacher administers the exam to his/her students. If the virtual or homeschool teacher needs assistance finding a sponsoring teacher, they should call the National Spanish Exam office at (219) 465-2100.
NOTE: Neither virtual/homeschool teachers nor the sponsoring teacher should register virtual or homeschool students. The deadline for homeschool registrations is January 15.
Payment for the Exam:
The cost per student for virtual or homeschool teachers and their students will be the same as the cost for the sponsoring teachers and their students. The cost per student is the national fee $4 and an optional chapter fee. If the sponsoring teacher participates at the local/state level, the virtual or homeschool teacher must include the chapter fee per student.
The virtual or homeschool teacher must pay the regular $75 teacher fee. If the virtual or homeschool teacher is a member of the AATSP, this fee is waived.
