Elementary Report Cards
The Kindergarten-5th grade standard based report card is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and content standards. The report card is organized by category titles and descriptors that reflect the CCSS and district standards. Elementary reporting periods can be viewed at the end of every trimester.
Academic content standards indicate what students should know and be able to do at each grade level by the end of the school year.
In addition to providing you and your child with greater detail about achievement and progress toward grade level standards, the standards-based report card has other advantages.
A standards-based grading and reporting system will:
- Allow students more than one opportunity to show what they know, understand, and can do.
- Make grading more clear and consistent.
- Give feedback to students and parents, so that students can work to improve their performance.
- Connect grading and reporting to state and district standards.
