Communication of student learning is one key to student success. Clarkstown CSD utilizes a Standards-Based Elementary Report Card. A standards-based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level. In a standards based learning environment, students receive marks that show how well they mastered each skill. Our report card is based on three marking periods. Teachers will use marking period rubrics to evaluate student progress. These rubrics will provide consistency between teachers and schools because all teachers will be using the same rubrics. Report cards will be sent home in December, March, and June.
Report cards will be distributed on a trimester schedule. If a child is absent on the day that report cards are distributed, parents may pick up his/her report card in the office after school is dismissed. Report cards will not be sent home prior to the distribution date.
If a student receives special education services through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), it includes a great deal of information including evaluation results, present levels of educational performance and goals. IEP progress reports will continue to be distributed to parents on the same schedule as the report cards.
