As we begin our 2011-‐2012 academic school term, we have redesigned our standard based report card to reflect the focus of our learning on the PowerSchool reporting site.
Educators are expected to teach to the standards and to assess student learning along the way using a variety of assessments.
The teachers at Burlington-‐Des Lacs Elementary have sharpened their focus on four essential questions about teaching and learning:
- What do we want our students to know and be able to do?
- How will we know they have learned it?
- What do we do if they have not learned it?
- What do we do if they already know it?
Our standards based report card gives us a tool to accurately communicate to parents and guardians the progress their child is making at each grade level PK-‐8.
