What is a Standards-Based Report Card?
Standards-Based report cards measure each child's progress toward end-of-year goals or "standards." By focusing on what students should be able to do at the end of each grade level, families will have a much deeper understanding of their child's learning and what an be done to support them at home.
Proficiency levels are used to show progress toward year-end goals. The levels are:
1 - Not yet approaching
2 - Approaching
3 - Meets
4 - Exceeds
Traditional grades indicate static performance, rather than progress toward goals. Proficiency levels allow students to gauge their current learning with the expectations of the standard so that they can continue their growth towards mastery.
If you have questions about your child's academic performance or progress in class please contact their classroom teacher.
