The Board feels that it is essential for parents to be kept fully informed of their children’s progress in school.

The type of progress reports sent to parents will be devised by the professional staff in cooperation with parents. Report cards will be uniform throughout the district at comparable grade levels except as special forms may be developed for special programs or new forms tried out on a temporary basis.

Report cards will be distributed on a nine-week basis. The nine-week grade will be based on many factors, such as: basal text assignment, both oral and written; class participation; special assignments; research; activities of various types and kinds; special contributions.

Supplementary reports will be required for students in danger of failure. Conferences with parents also will be used as an integral part of the reporting system.
