Report Cards 101
The SCUSD K-6 report card has been revised to align to the California Common Core State Standards (CA CCSS) for mathematics and English Language Arts that will be implemented state-wide in 2014-15. Parents will notice the following on the new report card:
- A 4-point grading scale indicating the four levels of standards achievement
- An alpha scale of O (outstanding), S (satisfactory), P (progressing), or N (needs improvement) that indicates progress in the learning expectations for each domain or strand of standards
- New categories for math and English Language Arts aligned to the CA CCSS
- A section on Behaviors that Support Learning reflecting social emotional learning competencies and work habit skills that are critical to academic success
The district has provided a helpful guide to better understand the changes and how to read the new format.
