2020 - 2021 ELN year-end portfolio review and evaluations
A welcoming and friendly conversational style experience to share their learning journey over the past year geared toward self-directed and unschooling families in Philadelphia PA.
Welcome to Eclectic Learning Network’s Year-end Portfolio Review and Evaluation
Though home education is legal in all states, policies, and requirements are defined by each state. Some states are open, while others institute policies that require young people enrolled in home education programs to complete a year-end portfolio review and evaluation. When it comes to states like Philadelphia, PA, this requirement can bring a flood of feels for many families, especially those who engage in self-directed and unschooling learning approaches.
Areas of focus for Year-end Portfolio Review and Evaluations
Have you thought or stated any of the following:
ELN’s unique approach to year-end evaluations offers families a welcoming and friendly conversational style experience to share their learning journey over the past year.
Portfolio reviews and evaluations will run from 45 - 60 minutes per young person and kick off with families meeting the ELN’s evaluator and owner to get to know one another. Following, young people will join the evaluator in a separate breakout room to review and discuss their portfolio. Concurrently, the parent(s) will remain in the main room with ELN’s owner to discuss their experiences, challenges, and successes throughout the learning year while gaining insights in real-time and additional resources, if needed. Our time will close with all parties regrouping in the main room for the evaluator to share a summary of the assessment, including considerations for continued practice around current challenges and proficiency areas. Additionally, parents will receive their completed evaluation to email the school district upon approval.
Evaluations will be held from April thru June 2021.
The deadline to submit your completed evaluation to the School District of Philadelphia is June 30th.
