The training will help districts/schools define a purpose for using a SBRC, guide them in aligning standards to student learning and assist in recording students’ progress and achievement based on standards.

Possible benefits of using a SBRC:

  • A standards-based report card reinforces consistent, high expectations for all students and schools
  • Standards-based report cards reflect what a student should know and be able to do at each grade level in all subjects
  • This type of report card helps teachers, students, and families focus on the standards throughout the school year
  • A standards based report card provides specific feedback on progress to the standards so students, families, and teachers can work together to set meaningful goals for improvement
  • It provides information regarding big ideas and concepts each child has learned and what work is still needed for success in the next grade level

Timeframe: 2 days (may depend on current progress in each district)
