The date by which you must send the status report to the Direction de l'enseignement à la maison (DEM) differs depending on the time of year you begin homeschooling.
The regulation specifies that that you can incorporate your status report and mid-term or completion report into one document.
However, AQED suggests that you submit them separately, as the information contained in the status report can then be considered as a learning trace during the monitoring meeting with the DEM.
Your status report must:
No need to be exhaustive: only include activities necessary to meet the requirements of the law. The approximate time allocated can be expressed as the total number of hours, the number of working days since the beginning of learning at home, the approximate frequency (every day, once a week, etc.), or an example of a typical day.
Some DEM resource persons insist that documents be written using a competency-based breakdown of the Quebec Education Program (QEP) only.
AQED argues that the Education Act requires an appropriate education, not one equivalent to the school system. The breakdown by competencies in the QEP therefore does not seem to be a reasonable requirement.
