Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you are staying warm on this cold Friday. As a reminder, starting today at 3:00 p.m. you will have access to your child’s Standards Based Report Card electronically in PowerSchool. An email was sent by Michael LaCava today with screenshots and directions on how to access the report card as well as digitally sign it. We are asking parents/guardians to digitally sign the report card this year to indicate that you have read it. If you are having technical difficulty, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The portal team is available Mon-Fri 8am-4pm.
With respect to the grading on the Standards Based Report Card, students are assessed relative to end-of-year grade-level standards. The indicators are:
M = Meeting the standard consistently and independently.
P = Progressing towards meeting the standard.
B = Beginning to progress towards meeting the standard.
N = Not yet demonstrating progress towards meeting the standard.
* = An asterisk indicates that this standard has not been assessed during this particular term. Some units of study are taught at different times of the school year.
Blank = the standard is not being taught this year due to a temporary realignment of the curriculum
It is very typical at this mid-point in the school year for a child to not yet be meeting end-of-year standards consistently and independently. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have specific questions.
