Standards & Assessments

Pupil Progress, Report Cards, & Parent Conferences

A report card is provided to parents/guardians of all students enrolled at school for fifteen or more days within a reporting period. Report cards are issued three times during the school year (November, March, and June). Parents will be notified at the mid-point in the reporting period for those students who're at risk of not meeting grade level standards (receiving a 1 or 2) and of possible retention.

Plan to attend both parent conferences which are held in the fall and spring of each year. It is very important that you stay informed about your child's progress towards the standards as well as those work habits that will support their college and career readiness. Please maintain consistent communication with your child's teacher and stay informed of your child's progress throughout the year. By working together, we can provide the highest quality education for our children.

Common Core State Standards

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational assembly in the United States that details what K–12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce.
