Reporting Standards is an essential component of education. Parents often wonder, "What is my child learning in school?" We often hear comments about the "new standards." Thus, in a sincere effort to improve communication regarding these pieces, Washakie No. 1 is working hard to translate Wyoming Standards into student/parent friendly language through the implementatin of a Standards-Based Grading and Reporting System.
This sytem is being implemented in three Phases:
In line with these standards, teachers will be reporting proficiency using the following scale:
As parents receive these reports, they will be able to watch their child "grow" from August to May, and from Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Reports will help parents to understand their student's strengths and areas in need of extra efforts in both Academic and Life Skills Behaviors.
We have designed a report card system that outlines these standards in a way that is easy to read, easy to understand, and provides answers to the essential question, "What is my child learning in school?"
The following links will take you to our Standards Report Cards - Grade 5 is in development and will be implemented during the 2019-20 school year. We welcome your input as we move forward with this project.
Yours in education,
