The ePortfolio Scholars Program now accepts students in two tracks: the Continuing and Graduating ePortfolio Scholars. Each track will have a particular focus that will allow students to focus on key areas of the core ePortfolio. Students who participate in the program will re-think and revise their work and work on key areas that haven't yet been completed and that will advance their learning experience.
