The district implemented new reporting procedures for students in kindergarten through grade three during the 2014-2015 school year. The new report card was created by a committee comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators from all three elementary schools. This group came together throughout the course of the 2013-2014 school year to review the old reporting procedures, create a new format and accompanying benchmarks, and alter the reporting periods. Additionally, several teachers and students piloted the new instrument during the second half of the school year. We received valuable feedback from all stakeholders involved in both the initial creation of the report card and the pilot and believe the new reporting procedures will provide more specific, valuable feedback to parents.
