And still people wonder why virtual schoolers are not considered homeschoolers...
Do you have any documentation demonstrating this that you can share? Does the mandate come from your district?
Nice way to dredge up a post from 6 years ago...

We started loosely in kinder because our school district at the time was awful. Compulsory age here is 6, so we, er I, used pre-k and kinder as experimental years. By 1 st, I wasn't secure, but had some confidence in what we were doing. We have since moved and We have two students, but I can't imagine my kids thriving in falling systems the way they do at home. Our current district actually does ok. Should we have a need for a public school situation, I would be remorseful...
Vow is such a strong word. I made marriage vows. I vow to do the best I am capable of doing with the knowledledge, materials, and resources I have for my children. However, I have goals for their education and I can see us having a vision and/or mission statement that discusses or explains the goal(s) for their education. In light of that, I assume the OP means having some kind of set goals or achievements for the year?
Have you looked at Studies Weekly for state history? Materials for WA can be viewed here: http://www.studiesweekly.com/results/Washington/Third-Grade. I haven't tried it yet, but I have the CA stuff on order for our state study. It was cheap and I can get two students done this year.
We've just finished up Alexander the Great and now we're on a short break while I wait for a Latin American folk tale book from the library to move on with SOTW 1.
Are you thinking of something like the German practice of a schultute?
If you go the Brave Writer route, I suggest purchasing items via Homeschool Buyers Co-op: https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/brave-writer/?c=1
