Revised Kindergarten-Fifth Grade Report Cards
This year, students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth grade will receive a revised report card. This report card is intended to provide you, as the parent, information on how your child is progressing toward Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Progress toward standards in science and history/social studies are reported as well. The revised report card will continue to communicate social/emotional growth, citizenship and participation in enrichment opportunities.
The Rancho Santa Fe School district has used a standards based report card for several years. This revised report card reflects modifications due to the newly state-adopted Common Core Standards. A standards-based reporting system is designed to inform parents about their child’s progress towards achieving specific learning standards. The newly adopted Common Core State Standards describe what students should know and be able to do at each grade level and across their K-12 academic experience. The purpose of a standards-based report card is to provide feedback to parents and students that is more detailed about progress towards specific content indicators at each grade level. With this understanding, parents will be able to guide and support their child helping him/her to be successful in a rigorous academic program.
Academic performance levels on the K-5 report card are as follows:
Student performance exceeds grade level expectations for this trimester with consistent accuracy and a high level of quality.
Student performance is secure and meets grade level expectations for the trimester.
Student performance is developing steadily toward grade level expectations for this trimester.
Student performance is beginning to progress toward grade level expectations with additional time and/or support.
District expectations are that each child is Secure in his/her mastery of and progress toward grade level standards. Students will receive an Exceeds only when performance consistently exceeds grade level expectations for the trimester with consistent accuracy and a high level of quality beyond what is expected at a grade level during a given grading period.
Progress is only reported on standards taught and assessed each trimester. On the trimester one report card, expect to see only the standards taught and assessed thus far. For second and third trimesters, parents will see the standards assessed in both the current and previous trimesters. Trimester three report cards describe progress toward year end, grade level standards.
