Student Report Card Information

District 26 has been implementing the Common Core Standards over the last five years in English/Language Art and Mathematics.  Changes are being made to increase the level of rigor and higher order thinking at all grade levels.  Additionally, the new Standards explicitly outline what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.  Now that the Standards are being addressed in every classroom, a new report card has been created to reflect assessments that align with common core learning expectations.  

The Standards establish high expectations for all students, and describe what students should know and be able to do by the end of the academic year. This report card is a working document which is reflective of your child’s progress at the time of issue. The objectives contained within this document are reflective of skills to be mastered by the end of the 2015 - 2016 school year. They serve as the basis for grade level curriculum, instruction, and assessment in River Trails School District 26.The report cannot communicate everything you might want to know about your child’s current progress. A report card should be considered with other information you receive from the school concerning your child’s academic progress.  The comments section indicates grade level performance based upon academic level and accommodations if appropriate.   

Over the course of the 2015-2017 school years, teachers will work to align classroom assessments and activities to the performance descriptor levels of the report card which are:
1 - Does not yet demonstrate an understanding of concepts, skills and processes taught
2 - Beginning to demonstrate an understanding of concepts, skills and processes taught
3 - Consistently demonstrates mastery of concepts, skills and processes taught
4 - Exceeds the required performance
NE - Not evaluated at this time
