EHS Portfolio Development
Beginning with the class of 2013 a student portfolio is a graduation requirement. Advisers will play a critical role in assisting students in successfully meeting this graduation requirement.

- Demonstrate capabilities and concerns, as well as knowledge and skills
- Be engaged in self learning and assessment of student growth over time
