Progress Report Update For K-6

Dear Families,

Progress Reports (K-6) will be distributed by your classroom teacher next week (January 26th).  We have incorporated the performance level 4.  This level represents work and behavior that exceeds the expectations and benchmarks set forth by the Common Core Standards. Typically this means the work is exemplary, goes beyond the assignment and the work was done independently.  For behavior this means that students followed routines of the class and remain focused during classwork time and lessons independently.

Given the high standards the Common Core demands of the students, reaching a performance level 4 is exceeding expectations. A performance level 3 signifies that the work is meeting Common Core standards.  Performance Level 2 means that the work is approaching standards and Performance Level 1 means that this is an area of concern as the work is well below standards.  As always, we support students at their current level and we will continue to communicate and create plans with students and families to help them meet the next level.

To comply with the Chancellor’s paperwork reduction initiative, we will be using the checklist for all of our remaining progress reports (K-6). This means that the narrative portion of the progress report will be a part of the conversation during the family conference times.  Please note that this year there are more family conferences, per Chancellor addition. The remaining family conferences are in March and May.

If you have any questions, please send me an email at clowenstein@schools.nyc.gov


Best,
Claire
