A continuous effort will be made to inform parents of each student’s progress, through the use of quarterly report cards, parent conferences and telephone calls.

Elementary Level (K-5)

Report cards will be provided to parents/guardians at the end of each quarterly marking period. Progress reports may be sent in the middle of each quarter. In addition, parent conferences will be conducted at the end of the first, and if necessary, third marking period.


Parents/guardians will sign and return the report card envelope at the end of the first, second, and third reporting periods. Report cards will be kept by the parents at the end of the school year. A school copy of each report card will be maintained by the classroom teacher and placed in the student’s cumulative folder at the end of the school year.

Middle School and High School [Secondary] Levels (6-12)

Report cards will be mailed to the parents/guardians of each student at the end of each of the first three quarters. In the middle of each quarter, interim reports will be sent home for students who are progressing poorly or failing individual subjects. For any unique situation that a teacher feels warrants informing the parent, an interim report will be completed. This may include exceptional progress, conduct problems, or a lack of effort.

Additional progress reports may be made as needed. This may include written weekly reports, parent conferences, or telephone conversations pertinent to a student’s progress.

Title I and Academic Intervention Services Students

Parents/guardians of students receiving Title I and/or Academic Intervention Services (AIS) shall be provided with quarterly written reports on their child's progress, opportunities for parent conferences or consultations each semster, and suggestions for working with the student at home. Copies of letters sent to parents/guardians relating to a particular situation or problem will be kept in the student's folder.

Each student who receives Title I or AIS services will be monitored and evaluated frequently for academic progress.
