Second Marking Period Report Cards

January 2021

Report Card Guidelines

As the end of the marking period quickly approaches, we wanted to clarify procedures for evaluating hybrid and remote students on the report card.

Am I evaluating the "Behaviors that Support Learning" section for hybrid students?

Yes! We will continue to evaluate hybrid students on all areas of Behaviors that Support Student Learning.

Am I evaluating the "Behaviors that Support Learning" section for remote students?

Fully remote students are excused/exempted from the following identified behaviors that support learning and cannot be rated; therefore, teachers will record "EX" (Exempt) for these behaviors:


Kindergarten:

  • Works and plays with others cooperatively

  • Independently carries out tasks related to daily routines

  • Works without disturbing others

  • Completes tasks with assistance

  • Completes tasks independently


Grade 1-2:

  • Works and plays with others cooperatively

  • Independently carries out tasks related to daily routines

  • Completes tasks with assistance

  • Completes tasks independently


Grades 3-5:

  • Uses time wisely

  • Works cooperatively with others

  • Applies decision-making skills to balance daily academic and social situations

Are Fully Remote Students Exempt from Speaking & Listening Standards?

NO. All remote students should be evaluated on the speaking and listening standards, as you have been meeting with them weekly. Your rating should reflect your observations over the past few months.

Have there been any new areas shaded as a result of the PLC discussions?

Yes, the standards below have been added to those areas shaded and will not be rated for the second marking period.


3rd Grade: Reading Goals
  • Compares and contrasts important elements of two texts


4th Grade: Math

  • Represents and interprets data including line plots
  • Understands concepts of angle and measures angles


5th Grade: Speaking/Listening Goals

  • Presents information and supporting evidence in a clear and understandable manner, using visuals when appropriate

Spanish Grades

K-2- Spanish is not scored on the report card.


The Spanish grades are being recorded in the PS gradebook by Gloria and Jennie for students in grades 3-5.


For grades 3, 4, and 5 there are two categories:

Understanding of Content and Engaging in Activities.

The rating scale: Consistently, Usually, Occasionally, Rarely


In all grades, we are opting to refrain from assigning a "rarely" in Spanish due to the limitations in time, amount of contact, and our unique learning environment. This is not the case with special area courses. Therefore, Gloria and Jennie will be following this guidance:

  • Consistently for both areas: Students have been doing a good job of completing their work.
  • Occasionally for both areas: Students have been submitting little to no work.


By engaging in the activities we design, we must accept that the students understand the concept as best as they can in this environment. We can't expect them to be able to communicate in all four modes when we have been asynchronous. Therefore, we are grading them based on the expectations we had for this environment.
