Watertown City School District strives to communicate to parents and guardians how our students have grown over time. We feel this is important in identifying your child’s strengths and his/her areas in need of growth.
On your child’s K-4 report card, you will see:
Individual Skills - these reflect the most critical skills that students are working on in a given subject area/grade level. Your child is learning so much more than this in the classroom, but these were selected as priority standards about which to share information with you.
Effort - this is separate from how a student performs on the skills in a subject area.
Learner Behaviors - these identify citizenship skills and habits of mind important to success as a member of a learning community.
Reading Levels - these show where your child is currently reading independently. These are intended to help you in selecting books for your child at the library, bookstore, etc. that are appropriate for him/her to read without assistance. Attached is a sheet that explains these further.
Instead of score ranging from 0-100, you will see scales from 1-3 or 1-4 and word descriptors for the effort and learner behaviors. The language for these scales is listed below:
Effort/Learner Behaviors (Grades K-4)
4 = Exceeds current grade-level expectations
O = Outstanding
|3 = Meets current grade-level expectations||
S = Satisfactory
|2 = Approaching current grade-level expectations||
I = Inconsistent
|1 = Well below current grade-level expectations||
N = Needs Improvement
