Standards Based reporting: clear communication about each child's learning

The job of a report card is to clearly, fairly and objectively communicate how a child is doing in school. Standards-based report cards help students better understand what is expected of them in each subject area, provide teachers with a more specific tool to report what each child should know and be able to do during each grading period, and give parents a more detailed understanding of the academic expectations in each content area.

The standards-based report card puts more emphasis on learning and less on comparisons among students because students are evaluated against standards rather than against each other. As a district, we have worked hard to align our curriculum and instruction to state and federal standards for what children should know and be able to do. Standards Based Report Cards are a natural evolution in this work, and will help all of us work more effectively toward sustained academic improvement.
