605.1 - Student Progress Reports and Conferences




The following are objectives of a system of student progress reporting practices:

  1. To inform parents/guardians of their student’s progress
  2. To clarify the expectations of the instructional program
  3. To record for students their growth or achievement
  4. To assist students in evaluating their growth or achievement
  5. To assist the students, parents/guardians, and schools in working cooperatively for the welfare of the students

Students will receive a progress report at the end of each regular grading period. Prior to the end of the grading period, a reasonable attempt will be made to notify parents/guardians of students who are not achieving as expected. The board encourages notification to parents/guardians of students who have made marked improvement prior to the end of the grading period.

The elementary schools, middle schools, intermediate schools, and high school will hold conferences at a minimum of once per year. Parents/guardians, teachers, or principals may request conferences for students in addition to these required conferences.

Parents/guardians and students are encouraged to discuss student progress or other matters with the student’s teacher.
