Keeping good records is essential not only to comply with state law but also to keep track of what your child has learned. Oklahoma law requires that you keep tract of 180 days of school in a log book.

I also strongly recommend that you keep a portfolio for each child. A portfolio is a much better record of your child's learning than grades. (Read what teachers are thinking about GRADES.)

You may need any or all of these records for college admissions, job applications, and/or problems with Department of Human Services. Another good reason to keep them is so that you can go back and see that you actually have accomplished something.
