Grade Level Goals and Expectations
Our system of grading is based on the Orange County Public School Alphabetic System of for Elementary Schools: S = Satisfactory W= Working towards the goal N= Needs improvement U= Unsatisfactory Additionally, if a student receives an N or a U, on any of their paperwork, it must be signed by a parent and returned. In first grade, we use a goal sheet that is sent home with each report card.
This gives you an idea of what the expectations are, based on the time of the year. It also allows you to track your student's growth.
