Over the last few days, we’ve on going reports of problems with the elementary report cards, with various standards missing or entire content areas missing from the reports.
In order to resolve the issue quickly – we have moved to using only ONE report card. Instead of having a Specials Report and a Trimester Report – there is now ONLY a Trimester Report.
The report is found in the same exact location as the previous reports, GRADING & STANDARDS > REPORTS > REPORT CARD and select TRIMESTER REPORT CARD for the Report Options pull down.
How does this change things for parents? It simply means that they will receive one report card instead of two separate reports.
Will this change be permanent? We will review this summer – but so far, personally, I am in favor of staying with one report, as it seems to make sense for parents and it saves time for teachers, but we’re open to feedback.
