Dear Parents, and Guardians,
There are three critical pieces of information to share with you, the parents and guardians for this month. First, you received or will receive your child’s report card for the 2nd quarter. It is crucial that you know and understand how the report card reflects the level to which your child has mastered the College and Career Readiness Standards. If your child has an A or B in the subject, your child is successful at mastering the content. If he or she received a C, start to question how well they know the key content within the subject. I would suggest you contact the classroom teacher about your child if they have a D or an F in a subject area. Set an appointment to meet with the teacher and discuss how you can support your child at home. Ask about the after school program, tutoring in the mornings, and other ways to support your child’s growth in their education.
Second, the U.S. Department of Education has signed a new act into law as of December 10, 2015. It is called the “Every Student Succeeds Act”. This law will allow states more opportunities to meet accountability expectations with applications for grants. The law also allows for the exchange of comprehensive state-developed plans designed to close achievement gaps, and it will possibly reduce the burden of testing while maintaining information for parents and students. For more information, visit the website.
Third, Lake View Primary is researching the use of a standards-based report card. The kindergarten grade level already uses a reporting system that reflects the essential skills and knowledge needed for all kindergarten students. Assessments and tasks align to the reporting system to identify where your child is at when working towards mastery of the content. The 1st and 2nd grade teachers will be looking at samples from other districts, identifying essential content within subjects, and identifying the scale to reflect where students are within the learning of the standards. You will be receiving more information about this change throughout the remainder of this school year. We are looking at implementation of the new report cards for the 2016-2017 school year. If you have questions or would like to have input in the report card changes, please join our site council on January 19, 2016, at 4:30 p.m. at the Lake View office.
Lake View Primary School is a positive, safe environment where an enthusiasm for learning is shared by all. The staff is dedicated to educating all students to high levels of academic growth with an emphasis on reading, writing, and math. Through teamwork, the Lake View community is developing children who are socially, emotionally, and academically successful.
