During the 2015-16 school year, a committee of first through fifth grade teachers from across the district collaborated to revise our report cards. This work resulted in the development of standards-based progress report cards for students in first through fifth grade. The 2016-17 school year will be the first year the new progress report card will be implemented. The progress report card is designed to document and provide feedback about what each student is learning in every subject area and to report progress toward grade level end of year standards and habits of success.
Revisions to the progress report cards include the following:
- The content areas for English Language Arts and Mathematics have been aligned with the state’s standards.
- The grading has been transitioned from numerical grades to descriptors designed to show where students are on their journey towards meeting end of year grade level standards.
- The effort/work habits and citizenship section has been changed to Habits of Success; Lifelong Learning to further reflect the work habits needed to be successful in the 21st century.
