Grading Policy 
 
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade 
The Primary Report Card uses a rubric approach with a 4, 3, 2, 1 scale. This approach allows teachers to communicate cumulative student progress at an identified point in time. Expectations for each academic area increase as the year progresses. This means that a child can receive a 3 during one marking period and then receive a 2 the next due to the rise in expectations each quarter and/or the change in skills taught. 

4 Consistently and independently demonstrates a thorough understanding of the standard(s).
3 Frequently demonstrates an understanding of the standard(s).
2 Limited understanding of the standard(s). Area of concern
1 Does not demonstrate understanding of the standard(s). Area of concern
