Standards-Based Report Cards (K-3)

Students in kindergarten through 3rd grade will receive a standards-based report card for English-Language Arts, Math, and Study Skills. This means that, instead of receiving one overall grade for the subjects of language, reading, spelling, math, and study skills, students will receive a grade for each individual standard that is assessed each quarter within those subjects. The standards that the diocese is using are M (Meets Standard), A (Approaching Standard), and N (Needs Intervention). The logistics of transitioning to this new grading system and to RenWeb (the diocese’s new grade recording system) have been very difficult. Please bear with us as we adjust to two new systems at once. More information will be sent to you as we get closer to the end of the quarter (October 19).
