The kindergarten to grade 6 reporting system is standards-based, allowing a teacher to communicate accurately a student's progress towards meeting content standards at speciific points in the school year. From this report card parents learn how their children are doing based on NYSED standards- which highlight big ideas an concepts their children have learned and what they need to work on to ensure they are ready for the next grade level.
