Common Core

Consistent clear expectations

Designed to reflect real world skills so that students are
college and career ready

Math priorities: understanding & fluency of
multiplication/division, develop understanding of
fraction equivalence, adding/subtracting with like
denominators, multiplying fractions, and understanding
geometric figures

Language Arts priorities: refer to ideas and details to
support, explain ideas/information, craft and structure,
interpreting and integrating information in different
ways, comprehend various types of texts
What is MY
attitude /
approach to the
Common Core
Standards?
Standards Based Grading at Six to Six
 Continuing
this year, students in grades K-6 will
be assessed using standards based grading. This
standards based report card is aligned with the
Common Core Standards in literacy and
mathematics.
 The report card will show student growth on a
learning continuum based on end of year grade
level expectations or standards.
What is Standards Based Grading?

Standards based grading is a grading system that focuses
on the content, skills, and standards that students must
learn. This means that when recording scores, the
concern is not with the cumulative score on a test
(traditional grading), but rather the level of mastery the
student has achieved on each concept assessed on that
test (standards based grading).
-Active Grade
Our New Report Card Grades

You will see how your child is progressing towards
master for each standard

Example:

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in
one place represents ten times what it represents in the
place to its right.
