Standards-Based Reporting and Grading

District 33: Committed to Excellence in Education!

As District 33 continues to implement new, more rigorous curriculum for what every child should know and be able to do in each subject area and grade level, we understand the importance of communicating with parents. Like teachers, parents need accurate and meaningful information about student strengths, challenges and performance to better understand and support student learning. We are excited to share our new report card with you that will positively effect student performance and parent communication!

Introducing Our New Math Standards-Based Report Card

Your child’s teacher is now participating in the use of a new math report card and a learning skills rubric. The new math standards-based report card is different than the traditional report you have seen in District 33. In elementary school, students will not receive a letter grade in math instead they will receive detailed information about their progress toward mastery of skills in math. In Middle School, students will continue to receive a letter grade but also detailed information about skills they are mastering in math. In elementary and middle school, homework, behavior, effort and participation are no longer calculated into the math grade instead they are reported on the learning skills rubric. For all other subjects you will continue to see the traditional report card and grading criteria which is based on a 3, 2, 1 scale with 3 as the highest rating
