Elementary Report Cards
Fall conferences provide an opportunity for teachers and parents to discuss student strengths and set goals for the year. Elementary report cards are distributed twice per year - in January and in June. Winter conferences provide a check-in point for goals.
Standards represent end-of-year goals. It's likely that students will take much of the year to meet a particular standard. In addition, not all standards are assessed in a particular grade period. For more on standards-based reporting see the resources page.
The following numbers and descriptors are used to report progress:
|4||Mastering||The student exhibits knowledge and understanding of the concepts, skills, and processes the standard requires and can readily apply this knowledge in a variety of settings.|
|3||Meeting||The student has a thorough knowledge, understanding, and application of the concepts, skills, and processes the standard requires.|
|2||Developing||The student is gaining understanding of the concepts, skills, and processes the standard requires, but has not been able to consistently demonstrate the learning.|
|1||Beginning||The student is just starting to understand the concepts, skills, and processes the standard requires and needs consistent support.|

Consistent with School Board Policy 6015 and guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Education, the elementary report card reflects all standards adopted either by the Minnesota Legislative statute or national organizations, depending on the discipline. The report card was developed with extensive research, input from a teacher committee and review by all K-5 teachers in the fall of 2014.
