Family Update May 20

We want to thank you for your feedback on standards-based grading. Hundreds of families participated through Family Action Committee meetings, focus groups and a ThoughtExchange

Overall, we heard that families appreciated the standards-based approach and the additional information it provides. We plan to pilot standards-based grading and report cards at a few schools in the fall of 2021.

Families requested further guidance on how to support their children in specific standards. We will continue to focus on supporting schools and teachers in building partnerships that support student learning. 

Based on your feedback, we have adjusted the grading scale, and revised the format and content to make the report card easier to read. 

Initial Proposed Report Card

Updated Report Card Based on Feedback

We will continue to collect feedback from students, families and teachers to refine our materials, systems and supports.
