What's New With Report Cards!

Freehold Township Schools


Elementary PE and Middle School Spanish are now being reported on at the end of each semester (2nd and 4th Marking Periods).

Middle School Spanish

This year, we will use a pass/fail system which will be reported by semesters (with the end of 2nd and 4th MP). In creating technology-infused, growth-minded environments, we encourage students to set goals for their own individual growth within the World Language Standards. Through the use of Realidades (a digital content provider), stations, and projects, we will support ways for students to understand and recognize their own growth. Our ultimate goal with all our school experiences is to foster students who are curious leaders of their own learning.

PE has transitioned to Standards-Based grading along with our K-3rd grade report cards. See the links and information below.

PE - Standards Based Report Card for 4th and 5th Grade

A standards-based grading and assessment system measures student growth and achievement against a specified goal. In physical education, the goal is to “develop physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity” (SHAPE, 2014, p. 11). Within this goal, there are specific objectives and standards. In 4th and 5th grade this school year, our students will be able to measure their growth against the PE standards and their progress will be reported each semester (end of 2nd and 4th MP). The Rubrics are linked below in the Q and A document created to help build your understanding and answer common questions.


Kindergarten

Kindergarten will receive their updated Standards-Based Report Cards in Genesis each semester (February and June). These reports will provide information on how their child is performing based on grade-level state standards (New Jersey Student Learning Standards - formerly Common Core).


In addition, each marking period (4 total) parents will be able to view their child’s Executive Functioning (EF) levels via our rubrics in Genesis.

1st Grade

1st Grade will receive their updated Standards-Based Report Cards in Genesis each marking period (4 times a year). The report card will include the Executive Functioning (EF) Rubrics as well.

2nd Grade

2nd Grade will be using the updated Standards-Based Report Card and continue to use the EF Rubrics each marking period via Genesis.

3rd Grade

3rd Grade will officially transition to Standards-Based Report Cards this school year. Each year another grade level will join the transition from traditional grades to Standards-Based grading.

Genesis (or a teacher created tool) will be used to track evidence of mastery levels throughout the marking periods by the teacher which will be reported via Genesis at the end of each marking period.


In addition, 3rd grade will join K-2 with its use of Executive Functioning Rubrics on the report card. These will be scored and will be visible to parents at the end of each marking period as well.
