Harmony Portfolio Submission Dates

  • May 7:  4th quarterly portfolio due

Harmony Portfolio Courses
Here’s a reminder to learning logs each week for your child’s Harmony Portfolio courses.  Learning logs help students meet attendance requirements and also let us know what your child has been working on during the week.

If you have not submitted the 3rd quarterly portfolio yet, please do so right away. Portfolio submissions need to show what the student has been learning for the past two months. The quarterly portfolio submissions dates for 2nd semester are:

  • Feb. 26:  3rd quarterly portfolio due
  • May 7:  4th quarterly portfolio due

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 should 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 at least 2 months.
  • Be sure that any files that you submit are in pdf or jpeg format. Some formats are not accessible for our teachers. Only file formats that a teacher can access will be graded. 

3rd Quarter Progress Grades
Wasatch Learning Academy will be posting 3rd quarter/term progress grades soon. Please note term 3 grades are for progress monitoring purposes. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades, please contact your mentor. 

Reimbursement Requests
You are able to submit a reimbursement request each month from now through May 31 for each child. Only one document may be uploaded for each reimbursement request, but you may include multiple receipts in the document.

Please note that resource ordering is now closed for the year, which includes resource orders for learning materials, Internet, and 3rd Party in which Harmony pays directly for the orders.

You can check your student’s funding balance by going to your parent dashboard and scrolling down to see your child’s name. Then click on Student Funding Account, where you’ll see the remaining balance for your child.

If there is an issue with your resource order, you can contact the ordering department by submitting a Help Desk Ticket.  You may leave comments related to missing items, provide additional information, etc.  Note: The Help Desk is only for resource order and reimbursement questions.

Flex Feedback Form
We’ve provided the Flex Feedback Form as a convenient way for you to let Harmony know about specific concerns with Flex quizzes or worksheets. These issues could include difficulty finding resources for a question, broken links to online resources, a confusing or misstated question, or even a spelling or grammatical error.

Please submit your specific concerns via the Flex Feedback Form. You can also find a link to the form on the parent dashboard in the Quick Access Links box.

Staying on Pace
Be sure to stay on pace with your submissions, as well as online coursework. Wasatch Learning Academy reviews progress reports twice a month.

Contact your mentor if you have a question or issue regarding your student’s courses.  Your mentor is your main point of contact at Harmony and is available to help with any issues and concerns you may be having about courses, ordering, grades, etc.
