February Federal Programs Updates
All elementary schools will conduct full school assessment screenings of math and reading progress in January. Our intervention teams use this information to update WIN groups (What I Need), and from what we are seeing so far, our students are growing rapidly!
On December 6th, elementary schools will send home progress reports to keep families updated on student progress. All families in all schools should have received Quarter 1 report cards in November. If you did not receive the report card for Quarter 1, please contact your child's school secretary.
At all school levels, we use Title IV federal funds to purchase incentives for PBIS (our positive school-wide behavior supports) rewards, and we emphasize the goal of following school rules in all schools.
Required documents for families:

Note: If your child is taught for four or more weeks by a teacher who is instructing in a
content area for which they are not currently certified, the district must notify you. Four week

#KeystoneCares: February is for Family
The faculty and staff of KCSD encourage parents to send their student to school everyday in order to achieve academic success!
If your student is absent, all parent excuses or medical excuses must be received by the office within 3 days after they return. Excuses can be emailed to: email@example.com
If you are concerned about your student's attendance, please reach out to your student's school counselor.
Family Focused February
Family and school partnerships are essential for helping students achieve at their maximum potential and while parent and community involvement has always been a cornerstone of public schools, greater recognition and support of these collaborative efforts is needed.
