H.C. Fenner Elementary Gets New Report Card
The purpose of the H.C. Fenner Elementary School report card is to inform parents and students about the achievement of specific learning goals. It identifies students’ levels of progress with regards to those goals, areas of strengths and areas where additional time and effort are needed. The new report cards are designed to communicate with parents - they should be helpful and easy to understand.
A standards-based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level. Instead of a letter or percentage grades, students receive marks that show how well they have mastered the skills. The marks will show whether the student is exceeding, meeting, approaching or below grade level expectations. Students will get separate marks for effort and work habits, which are important for parents to keep tabs on even if these characteristics aren’t included in the assessment.
Standards-based report cards provide detailed information about how the child is doing in each subject. You will see whether the child needs extra assistance in a certain area or when they need to be challenged. By using these clearly defined standards, teachers and parents can work together to ensure that students succeed.
1 = Below Grade Level Expectations
2 = Approaching Grade Level Expectations
