    Electronic Portfolio Review- NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY

    To be eligible for participation in the Electronic Portfolio Review Process a family must:

    • Have access to a computer to support electronic submission;
    • Have had two consecutive years of “Acceptable” portfolio reviews;
    • Submit all portfolio materials within the designated window.

    Electronic submissions from parents who have NOT met the above criteria will not be reviewed.

    While this new process is being introduced to both enhance efficiency and increase flexibility in the portfolio review process for our families, home schooling families may continue to have face-to-face reviews if this is preferred.
