High School Portfolio
Your High School Portfolio will be an ever-changing reflection of you over the course of your four years attending Pleasant Grove High School. It is important that you save all of your Portfolio documents in a safe place at home starting in the ninth grade. Some of these documents include Kuder assignments, Summative Letters, Best Work assignments, and Reflection Windows. Once each term, you will be required to submit a Best Work Reflection Window using Google Forms. Instructions for submitting your Reflection Window are included on this webpage. You will also receive instructions on how to do this in your Advocacy class. Your reflection window can be based on assignments, projects, tests-whatever you feel exemplifies your best work. In addition to these items, you can also reflect on significant life experiences, awards, and recognitions that occurred this school year. A total of six Reflection Windows, accompanied by the Best Work assignment, are required in your final Portfolio. The breakdown for Best Work Reflection Windows is as follows: two that represent growth, two that represent strengths, and two that connect to your future plans and goals. Additionally, at least two of the six must be from 9th, 10th, or 11th grade and at least two of the six must be academic in nature. At the end of your senior year, your Portfolio will be examined by the PGHS faculty and staff who will score it based on a rubric.
The Purpose of the High School Portfolio
The High School Portfolio is a collection of academic material, experiences, and recognition that students collect and reflect upon during their four years at Pleasant Grove High School. This collection of material is unique to each student and represents his/her individual growth, strengths, and plans for the future. Since your Portfolio is a reflection of each student, it will evolves as the student advance in grade level and as students interests and focus change. The contents of the Portfolio provide a guide for the oral presentation as well
- A guide for the High School Portfolio oral presentation
- Material to be used as a reference for jobs and/or college.
Best Work Reflection Window Appeal Process
Students will be granted a two week window from the time that Reflection Window grades are posted on School loop to appeal their grade. Students can either send an email to the Portfolio Coordinator stating his/her situation or report the appeal to the VP's office. Notification of the outcome of the appeal will be sent to the student's School loop email. Appeals received after the two week window will not be investigated and the student's grade will remain a No Pass for the quarter.
