Student performance is evaluated based on California State Common Core Standards using traditional letter grades. Report cards will be sent home at the end of each trimester throughout the school year. If a student is not meeting grade level standards, poor progress reports will be sent home at the halfway mark for each trimester.
Students in grades 2 or 3 who are earning an achievement mark of “D” or “F” on their report card in Reading are at risk of being retained in their current grade. Students in grades 4 and 5 receiving an overall achievement mark of a “D” or “F” in reading, language arts and/or mathematics are at risk of being retained in their present grade. Students may only be retained once in the same grade or during their elementary education.
If you have concerns regarding your child’s progress in school, please make an appointment to discuss the situation with the classroom teacher as soon as possible. You do not have to wait until report card time. The teacher may recommend that a Student Study Team (SST) meeting be held to discuss your child’s academic performance. The team may recommend additional academic or other types of assistance.
STUDENT STUDY TEAM (SST) PURPOSE & FUNCTION
If a student is experiencing difficulty with class work, behavior, or attendance, the teacher or an administrator may refer the child for a Student Study Team (SST). The SST consists of the parent or guardian, the classroom teacher, and/or a school administrator and other invited participants. The purpose of the team is to discuss current performance levels and come up with an intervention plan to implement at school and at home. After the initial SST meeting, a follow-up meeting is scheduled approximately 6-8 weeks later in order to evaluate the progress of the student using the suggested interventions.
