Portfolio Submissions for 4th Quarter
For Harmony Portfolio courses, the 4th quarter portfolio submissions are due on May 6. All portfolios need to be submitted no later than May 20 to give the teachers time to review and grade them before the end of the quarter.
The guidelines for portfolios are as follows:
- 5-8 portfolio items per subject.
- Items need to show student work, and examples could include worksheets, reports, tests/quizzes, science projects, etc. Remember that portfolio Items need to be the student’s actual work, not a learning log or description of what the student has been doing.
- Portfolio items need to be grade-level work.
- Portfolio items need to demonstrate student work over the course of 2 months.
Resource ordering is closed for the school year. If you still have funds to use you will need to use reimbursement.
