Assessments

The Research and Assessment service area coordinates student academic assessment and evaluation efforts in the district. This area supports the administration of district and state assessments and assists in the use of this data in the educational decision-making process. We work in collaboration with the other members of the Department of Teaching and Learning.

Report Cards

Report cards for elementary and middle school students come home with your child in February and July.  The intention is that the report card, along with other communication throughout the year, gives you information about how your child is progressing toward meeting the state standards, which specify what we want all students to know and be able to do at the end of each grade level.
