At Power Ranch Elementary, we have what is called a 'standards based' grading system. This is different than the traditional letter grade system and instead uses numbers 1-4 to determine a child's knowledge of the content.
Where traditional grades tended to reflect whether or not a student was participating and turning in homework, standards based grading reflects a child's understanding of the concept.
If your child has a low score, please do not assume your child is not doing the work. Simply spend a little more time working with your child on this concept! If you need any additional resources, feel free to contact me.
Because participation is not necessarily reflected in the grading, if you have any questions or concerns about your child's work ethic, please feel free to contact me.
