Locals go to learn about a Sudbury School Startup



In a phone interview before the meeting, Daniel Altman, press secretary for the Indiana Department of Education, said private schools aren’t required to accept vouchers, so the Sudbury proposal would join a handful of schools in the state.

He said one of the few requirements they’d have to adhere to include the Indiana Department of Health’s Sanitary School House Rules .

But he also said without subjecting students to state-mandated testing, they’d run the risk of foregoing state accreditation, which he said he wasn’t sure how it would affect students going into college.

Harbeson said those students wouldn’t have any more trouble entering college than any others coming out of home school across the state.

“Effectively, every home school is its own non-accredited school in Indiana,” Harbeson said.

She said home-schooled students usually undergo an interview process, either one-on-one with a university representative or with a committee. From there, she said it usually depends on the admission standards of that college, though they’re sometimes admitted under academic probation.
