WV Homeschool Portfolio Reviews


Hi. Curious. We use a ton of different resources for our homeschooling. We use Time4Learning as well, each day. I am curious as to wether i can email their pdf files to a reviewer?

I created this page to allow ease of contact with families homeschooling their children in WV.

Just a few days left to get annual assessments completed and turned in on time! Please remember, annual assessments are required if you homeschooled! Happy to answer any questions!


Annual assessments are due to your local BOE by June 30th. I have space next week if you haven't gotten yours done yet.


Homeschoolers! Don't forget your required annual assessment for each child who has a Notice of Intent submitted! Should be done and back to you by the end of the month. I have space if you need me to put you on my calendar. Message or text and I will get back with you as soon as possible.

If the child is finishing 3rd, 5th, 8th or 11th grade (according to the county), you must have those assessments to your local BOE by June 30th.


Hope Scholarship assessments due tomorrow! If you have a child with HOPE, please make sure theirs are turned in by tomorrow!


I hope everyone is having a great weekend with their families! I am spending time with mine too, so be patient if you message. I will get back on track tomorrow.


Just saw this! If you have HOPE scholarship, they are recommending email for submission. Please follow the Hope page for more info.


Portfolio Review forms are going out in the mail regularly. I have options for in person and remote. I even have openings over the next couple of weeks. Please let me know if you want to schedule. Hope Scholarship recipients each need an assessment turned in by the 8th of June. Homeschool students all need an annual assessment with reporting years due by the end of June.


It is mid-May. Graduations and end of year activities keep us busy. Don't forget annual assessments for homeschool students need to be scheduled and prepared for as well. Happy to help answer any questions.


Don't forget to schedule your portfolio review soon! May is here and they are due in June!

I have a last minute opening for Thursday morning this week via video if anyone is interested. Can accomodate up to three children during this time.


Happen to have a child with the HOPE scholarship and need a review? They are due to your local BOE by June 8th so please don't wait til the last minute to schedule!

Traditional homeschoolers, your assessments for reporting years are still due June 30th. Summer is coming so schedule soon if you need a review.


Q: Is a portfolio review for Homeschool and Hope Scholars the same?

A: Yes! The form and date to turn in are different, but the assessment of progress is the same.


If you are using Power Homeschool and want to move your assessment appointment up, please just let me know. If you lost data due to recent changes, find your progress emails and let's see if those will work. I am here to help.


If you have reviews this week, I appreciate your patience. I am a bit late sending out reminders.


Want me to do your portfolio review this spring? Please contact to schedule so I can give you dedicated and personalized time and feedback.


Everson, I can't seem to reply to your message.


I am available to do portfolio reviews for homeschoolers and Hope scholars. I am private pay only though, so I can not accept HOPE funds.


Q: What options are offered for reviews?

A: I offer in person, live via video, remotely via email, Messenger or mail. If you have another option to submit samples, I am flexible. I have had parents create pages, use SeeSaw, create a pdf and put in Google drive, etc. I am flexible!

2/28/2023: Legislative Alert & Update - CHEWV 03/03/2023

Just an update to a bill that may affect homeschooling. See link for details.

2/28/2023: Legislative Alert & Update - CHEWV Update 9:35 pm: 3408 passed 2nd reading in the House tonight. Update 8:30 pm: 3408 is on this evening’s House agenda for 2nd reading. It is expected to be voted on tomorrow, March 1st. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HB 3408 has been substantially reworked in the past 48 hours. The new language can be r...


The legal threat to homeschooling was defeated. Thank you for all who called or emailed.


A legal update and action needed.


𝗥𝗲𝗴𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗛𝗕 𝟯𝟰𝟬𝟴
Thanks to everyone who has been praying for the bill’s demise. We’ve made much progress on that front, but over the next 1-2 days, House members will be deciding exactly how to handle the bill – whether to vote it down, try to fix it, or table it. We are asking that you contact Delegate Joe Ellington (the House Education committee chair), the majority leader Eric Householder, as well as your local delegate: about the bill as soon as possible: via email, telephone, or in person. Ask them to kill HB 3408 because it is a poorly written bill with serious negative consequences for West Virginia homeschool families.

When communicating with these lawmakers, please remember that they have historically been very supportive of homeschooling. These delegates are not enemies of homeschooling, yet this is a bad bill that has surfaced, passed through committee, and now needs to be stopped.

So that you can develop your own arguments, more information about HB 3408 follows:

Reportedly, the purpose of HB 3408 is to clarify that students who are educated under the HOPE scholarship program have the same legal rights as traditional homeschool students. This would include things such as legal recognition of the diploma and PROMISE scholarship eligibility. CHEWV has no problem with such legal fairness. However, the trouble with the bill is that it places all students who “receive instruction in their home” into one legal category in the state code. There are two key problems with this approach, and BOTH need to be addressed.

While the bill makes a clear separation between homeschoolers and students in micro-schools or learning pods, it removes the distinction between traditional homeschoolers and HOPE scholar students who use an “Individualized Instructional Program” (IIP). When HOPE was being considered two years ago, CHEWV and other homeschool groups worked hard to maintain this legal distinction so that legal requirements for HOPE scholars were kept entirely separate from traditional homeschoolers. Putting HOPE IIP students in the same legal category as traditional homeschool students would be the first step down a “slippery slope” to make homeschoolers subject to more government regulation. Though the educational method and setting of both may look very much the same, CHEWV opposes any change in the law that eliminates the legal distinction between privately-funded, traditional homeschoolers and HOPE scholarship IIP students.

HB 3408, as it is currently written, also drastically increases the requirements for traditional homeschoolers by making them subject to the current “Option 1” requirements (designed for students who have a board-approved teacher come into their home to do the instruction). Specific problems with this are enumerated in CHEWV’s previous alert about HB 3408. Bill drafters are aware of these problems and seem willing to fix them. However, the bill is still alive, unchanged, and scheduled for its second reading in tomorrow's House session. Further, even if these particular problems are fixed, that’s not enough. (See the previous paragraph.) HB 3408 may have been well intended, but it is a poorly written bill that needs to be stopped immediately.


What questions do you have? Portfolio reviews do not have to be stressful!


You can book an appointment yourself here on Facebook using the BOOK NOW BOX IF you want to submit online and asynchronously. If you prefer in person or via live video, you must message me directly.


Happen to use Acellus (Power Homeschool)? You can add an advisor to your account. This might make a portfolio review easier.


Reading and Language Arts: these go together but both have to be assessed. I approach this my asking for a sample reading list or description of reading instruction and asking young children to read to me a bit if they are reading. Language arts can include everything else you think of for an English class. This can be different for each family or child. I do not have a checklist of where a child needs to be. I need to see progress. Please ask questions if you need clarification.


Happy New Year's!!!!
I hope you all and your families have enjoyed the holidays. I hope to be ready to start scheduling spring portfolio reviews by the end of the week. Please let me know if you have any questions!


I hope you all enjoy the Christmas season with your families.


Hope you are all having a great autumn. Please message if you have any questions. Enjoy the upcoming holiday season.
