LSR7 6th Grade Presidential Award - Change

In past years, LSR7 has awarded the President's Award for Educational Excellence to eligible 6th-grade students. One of the primary criteria for this award is grades earned in upper elementary grade levels. The Lee's Summit School District has been utilizing standards-based grading (SBG) and all students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades have measures of mastery of specific learning targets (M, P, & E) instead of traditional grades. Calculating an external award based on M,P,E achievement on given learning targets is not within the intent or spirit of Standards Based Grading. Therefore, LSR7 will not be participating in the President's Education Awards Program during the 2018-19 year or moving forward. We as a district remain committed to honoring student academic success, but we are committed to doing so in a way that best aligns with Standards-Based Grading.
