Report Cards are now "Progress Reports" & "Reporting Conferences"
As was shared throughout last year, Central Bucks has revised the elementary curriculum over the past years to better reflect state and district standards. Thus, a standards-based reporting system is the final step in creating a fully unified and interconnected educational system. In addition, a standards-based reporting system gives more specific information than traditional letter grades, and reports how well students are progressing towards achieving the standards expected at each grade level.
The CBSD Standards-Based Report is one document which holds two templates. The first of those is the Conference Report which is completed after the 1st and 3rd quarters. This report offers achievement information and fosters quality conversations about learning for parents, teachers, and students.
The second template is the Progress Report which is completed by teachers at the end of the 2nd and 4th quarters. The Progress Report communicates specific mastery levels, as well as student strengths and goals for continued growth.

Parent Portal . . .
The Central Bucks School district uses Infinite Campus as its student information system. The Parent Portal allows parents/guardians to view schedules, attendance, immunizations, and assessment information. Parents can also update demographic information for their family. The Parent Portal is now open. For more information on the parent portal please visit the CBSD website.
Effective with the 2014-2015 school year, elementary school parents will also be able to view, print, and/or save their child’s progress report directly from the Parent Portal.
