A Message from our Student Success Coach

Summer is a great time for everyone to relax and have fun. Here are some ideas for having a fun summer, while also making sure that students will be ready for school in the fall.



  • COVID guidelines from Washington County continue to change based on new information. We want you to stay safe and healthy.
  • Keep to a routine if possible. Kids thrive on regular sleep schedules, even in the summer.
  • Play lots! Play helps kids develop problem solving skills. Play it safe by remembering helmets and sunscreen when necessary.
  • Read! Reading is a great way for students to have adventures from home. It will also keep up their skills.
  • Family Fun can include cooking, playing games, and taking walks together!

Digital Summer Access

Wondering how to stay connected to learning this summer? Here’s a resource you can use with some engaging and interactive digital activities.

The Digital Summer Access Website has tools for reading, math, science, and more.

Students will need their BSD username and password information to access many of these. Please check in with your child's teacher to ensure you have this information before June 18.

EPIC Summer Access

Students in summer school can use Epic School during the school day.


Students can access the limited Epic Free for 2 hours a week using a parent email and password. Instructions here.


Families can pay a subscription to access the full library without limitations. They have a $9.99 three month summer special -- more information here.

Progress Reports

This progress report will not reflect end-of-year proficiency grading and will not have 1-4 proficiency marks.


Each section, with the exceptions of the Behavior, Language and Speaking & Listening sections, will indicate which targets have been taught during the semester and a mark reflecting the student’s learning progress, according to the evidence gathered. Evidence (both oral and written) can be gathered from assignments, formative assessments, and in whole group and small group settings (discussions and activities).


Teachers will indicate which targets have been taught in the various subject areas with “CDL” or “X”.


Teachers also will indicate Evidence of Learning Progress (growth). This section reflects the student’s learning progress toward grade-level targets according to evidence gathered.


Determining a student’s learning progress is based on their growth from the beginning of the year in each subject area. This mark doesn’t translate to a 1-4 proficiency grading scale. It’s solely based on evidence of growth.


Evidence of Learning Progress (Growth) Key During CDL

The Evidence of Learning Progress Indicator reflects the student’s learning progress towards grade-level targets according to evidence gathered during CDL. The evidence (both oral and written) can be gathered from assignments, formative assessments, and in whole group and small group settings (discussions and activities).


++ → Significant Growth - Student is making significant progress according to evidence gathered.

+ → Growth - Student is making progress according to evidence gathered.

ie → Insufficient Evidence - There is not enough or no evidence to determine progress or the evidence provided does not show progress.
