Student Work Portfolios at Computer School

Since there are only a few schools (Beacon and School of the Future) that require a portfolio and not all students apply to those schools, teachers do not return portfolios to all students. It is up to the individual student to request their portfolio should they need it to apply to a high school. Students who have a general idea as to whether or not they will be applying to one of these schools, can and SHOULD request their portfolio at the end of the year, if not at the very beginning of September. This way, they will have enough time to choose pieces they like, are comfortable with, and if necessary, request more comments to be written on the piece of work by a teacher.

  1. Erin, I assume this means comments can be put on work after the fact? In general, I have not seen any/many comments on CS work that gets high grades, so it would be helpful if comments could be put on and if you would encourage teachers to put more comments on promising work that is likely to be in a student's portfolio.
