Curriculum Focus

Learning Goals and Targets.....

Clear learning goals help student learn better! When students understand exactly what they're supposed to learn and what their work will look like when they learn it, they're better able to monitor and adjust their work, select effective strategies and connect current work to prior learning.

    Important Information

    Report Cards........New Comment Code #20 has been revised for teachers to use on student report cards. It states, “At this time, your student is not performing at grade level as measured by classroom assessments. Your student is currently performing below grade-level standards. Supports have been developed to address your student’s needs.” This comment may be placed beside any grade/subject for which it is applicable. Because of the limitations of the box, this entire comment will not appear in the drop down box for teachers, but WILL appear complete on the report card.
