Elementary Grading

Greetings, Elementary Parents!

We have made a few changes to our reporting system at the elementary level this year!

Families will be notified ahead of the reporting period that the documents are available in Skyward. Skyward can be accessed through ANY computer, tablet, or smartphone. Please be sure that you have shared your most updated email address with your child’s school so that you will have access.

Our elementary reporting period in the first trimester coincides with parent-teacher conferences, and we would much prefer to share your child’s progress in person! During the second and third trimesters, teachers will be in contact with you frequently by email and through ClassDoJo. If you have questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher!

All standards are end-of-year standards, and children have an entire school year to meet them. Your child’s grades will always reflect where s/he is on the journey to meeting those standards. This means that you should expect to see 2s and 3s on your child’s report card in the first trimester, and these are not cause for concern. They indicate that your child is progressing appropriately for his/her age and grade level.

You may interpret your child’s grades as follows:

Families will be able to access a complete and detailed list of all the standards that are addressed in their child’s grade level below.

If you have any questions about the new report card or Skyward, please contact Mrs. Julie Mayhew, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, at 401-568-1301, extension 1115, or at mayhewj@bsd-ri.net .
