Student Report Cards 2013 Update  

Bookmark and Share

Report cards are an important tool for families to keep track of their child’s progress.  Based on feedback from families, teachers, and principals, we are redesigning our report card to make it easier to read and understand. Here’s some of what’s changed:

  • The most important information is now summarized right on the front page. Families can get a clear picture of how their child is doing in school right off the bat.
  • The Sign and Return form is a great way for families to engage in a conversation with the school. Teachers know the parents have seen the report card and parents can share their reaction.
  • We’ve included more guidance and concrete steps for parents to support their children’s learning at home. For example, if student reading levels are listed, parents will also see a suggested list of books for their student.

Check out the sample report card and the High School preliminary report card.
