Report Cards

The Roseland School District's Report Cards have been revised for the 2019-2020 school year. We are very excited to share our standards-based, student progress report cards as we believe they will support our students, as well as school - home communication.

Report Card Information Sheet

The Purpose of the Report Card

  • Transparency and communication of student progress toward meeting end­-of­-year learning standards
  • Consistent focus on grade level goals
  • Greater consistency of expectations across the grade level and subject areas 
  • Availability and use of standards-based data to support and challenge students
  • Authentic feedback about student growth in both academic and socio-emotional areas for both parents AND students
  • A tool to further our shared understanding and conversations about student growth

Specific to Grades K-3

  • The elementary level report card is based primarily on growth
  • Performance Levels indicate document student growth or progress towards grade level end-of-year standards (ES, MS, AS, PS, NS, X)
  • Grades K-3 will include brief narrative comments under Literacy, Math, and Learning Behaviors with longer end of year comments
  • Mathematical and Learning Behaviors are year-long goals goals assessed with C, U, or I
  • Our goal is that by the end of the school year, students will be “meeting the standard” for their grade level skills and concepts

​Specific to Grades 4-6

  • The elementary level report card is based primarily on growth
  • Traditional letter grades are averages calculated by combining student performance on assignments, including homework, quizzes, tests, and project. Students receive letter grades for each subject area, including special areas, for each marking period
  • Performance Levels indicate document student growth or progress towards grade level end-of-year standards   (ES, MS, AS, PS, NS, X)
  • Our goal is that by the end of the school year, students will be  “meeting the standard”  for their grade level skills and concepts
  • Grades 4-6 have “Drop down” comments for ALL subject areas; many specific to the content area
  • Mathematical & Science Practices are year-long goals assessed with C, U, or I

Trimester Grade Reporting

The district will issue Report Cards on a Trimester Schedule with each marking period lasting ~60 days.

A Trimester Reporting Schedule provides:

  • FIVE Progress Updates (three report cards, fall conferences (a month prior to the first report card, and a spring conference (two weeks after the second report card)
  • More even and equal time across marking periods
  • Time for students to demonstrate progress
  • Additional time for teachers and parents to identify and support areas of concern during the grading period, particularly prior to the end of the first trimester
  • Provides greater flexibility for teachers to pace curriculum and ensure student mastery of instruction
  • E-Blast reminders will be sent when grades are posted each trimester

Report Card Samples (9/2019)

PreK Report Cards will also be distributed on the Trimester Schedule and utilize the ES, MS, etc. Performance Levels.
