Assessment of academic progress is based on the student's daily class work, class participation, homework, tests, evaluations, and projects.
Standardized testing is conducted annually to assess student progress in relation to other students of the same age and/or grade nationally.
Parents of students in Grades Pre-K thru 2 receive a written interim report of their child’s progress midway through each trimester.
In Grades 3-8, parents/guardians who have been granted access to their child’s grades through Power School may routinely view their child’s progress electronically. For parents/guardians who do not have access to Power School, the school will provide a mid-trimester report of the student’s progress if requested. Parents contact the Power School Coordinator to request these reports.
Interims are signed by parents and returned within two days of receipt.
At the end of each trimester, written reports are issued for students in Pre K and Kindergarten, and computer-generated progress reports are issued for students in Grades 1-8. First and Second Trimester Progress Report envelopes are to be signed and returned by the parent/guardian within one week. The Third Trimester Progress Report is mailed one to two weeks after school closes.

A mandatory parent/teacher conference is scheduled in the first trimester of the school year for each child. Additional parent conferences are scheduled at the request of the parent or teacher as necessary.
