Report Cards Information

Distance Learning grading and attendance for the 2020-21 school year

Grades PreK-5: Report cards will include a student's progress toward meeting state education standards. Standards are what each student is expected to learn in different areas such as literacy, writing and math.

Daily attendance is expected for all students. Student attendance will be taken based on a teacher's daily interaction with the student along with the student submitting their schoolwork on the online platform (Seesaw/Google Classroom). Interactions between a teacher and student include:

  • Participating in a video class or chat.
  • A phone call with the student, or for younger students, with the family.

As your child’s first and most important teacher, you play a crucial role in supporting learning at home. Our school principals, teachers and staff value your partnership and seek to provide timely feedback about your student’s progress throughout the school year. Our report card reflects standards and student’s progress towards meeting these standards. At each interval, teachers will use multiple data points (assessments, observation, conferences) to make decisions on these grades. This report card will be sent home with your student four times per school year. The report card has been designed based on feedback from parents, teachers, administrators and other stakeholders in order to give you more complete information in a single document. The report card aligns with MN state standards, which is about making sure that learning expectations are consistent and high across the school district and about providing families with more resources to monitor their child’s learning.
