New Standards-Based Report Cards for Elementary Students

The Kindergarten through Fourth Grade report cards will have a new look in the 2016-2017 school year. The Standards-Based Report Card’s purpose is to communicate to parents and guardians the
achievement status of their child. Reporting student progress is an essential part of the communication and partnership process between home and school. The new report card will communicate specific expectations of students’ learning on Ohio’s Learning Standards.

The new report card will use a scale that communicates specifically what a student has learned, achieved, and to what degree. This is similar to the past Kindergarten through Second Grade report cards. The new scale will communicate if the student is Meeting, Progressing, Exceeding, or not meeting the Ohio Learning Standards. Teachers and administrators from both Plain City and Monroe Elementary schools collaborated to determine the essential standards by grade level and how to best communicate students’ learning.
