The Common Core State Standards Elementary Grade-Level Report Card Guides for Families are designed to help parents/guardians understand the new report cards which are based upon the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
The following informational guides will assist you in understanding your child’s CCSS-based report card. Multiple pieces of evidence, including classwork, homework, tests, and projects are used to assess how well your student is progressing towards meeting the standards by grade level. A student’s grade will be determined by his/her progress toward meeting standards and goals set for the end of the school year. Therefore, it will be normal for marks to be lower in the beginning of the year and show improvement as students come to master standards. Question about your student's report card can be answered by either their teacher or your school's principal.
