  • What is a Homeschool Portfolio?
    A homeschool portfolio includes academic records and selections from a student's coursework in all required subject areas. Sample components are saved and compiled together in a binder over the year. At the end of the year, the completed portfolio can be reviewed by a Maine certified teacher to assess the progress made by the student during that time.
