Standards Based Grading

Parents,

On Friday, September 15 your student will receive his or her first progress report of the school year. This report provides a snapshot of your child’s learning and how they are performing at school thus far. Before receiving this report I wanted to remind parents about our district’s grading practice. In kindergarten through 5th grade Republic School District utilizes Standards Based Grading (SBG).


We implemented SBG several years ago through a pilot program and then expanded to all elementary grade levels for the 2016-17 school year. Therefore, this system is most likely very familiar to families who have been in district for a few years. However, this communication is to refresh your understanding of SBG and to also make sure our “new to Republic” families have a good understanding of our grading system.


Standards Based Grading is a best practice grading and reporting system that gives students, parents and teachers detailed information about how each individual student is performing on specific learning goals (or standards). Instead of an overall A, B, C, etc., students receive an “advanced”, “met”, “approaching”, or “not met” on each individual learning goal (or standard). These “grades” give students, parents and teachers the opportunity to specifically identify where the child is excelling and where they need extra assistance.



You can learn more about SBG by visiting republicschools.org/sbg. Feel free to contact me with questions or you can reach out to our Elementary Curriculum Specialist, Jennie Ritter at jennie.ritter@republicschools.org.
