Some states require extensive homeschool portfolios be maintained to ensure parents are complying with regulations.
Other states are fairly lenient, but many parents still like to keep a portfolio to document a child’s work and progress.
In my quest to become a better portfolio parent, I decided to share the bounty of links I found.
