Trimester Reporting and Standards-Based Report Cards
In the 2014-15 school year, the South Harrison Township Elementary School District shifted away from quarterly reporting (4 times per year) to trimester reporting (3 times per year) in grades K through 6. Additionally, the district began using a standards-based report card (SBRC) in grades K through 2 to report student progress. In the 2015-2016 school year parents of students in grade 3 received a standards based report card; parents of grade 4 students will receive standards-based report cards in the 2016-2017 school year.
Standards-based report cards allow specific, individualized feedback as to what every child should know and be able to do at each grade level in all subjects. This Standards based report card is designed to give parents more and better information about how their children are progressing and is an exciting step for the district as we work towards ensuring that all students are successful.
The presentation links below provides general information on the switch to trimesters K-6 and move to K-3 standards-based report card from the 2014-2015 school year. Additionally, a draft form of the kindergarten standards-based report card can also be accessed below.
