5420 - REPORTING STUDENT PROGRESS

The School Board believes that the cooperation of school and home is a vital ingredient to the growth and education of the whole child. It recognizes its responsibility to keep parents informed of student welfare and progress in school.

The Board directs the establishment of a system of reporting student progress which shall include written reports, and parent conferences with teachers, and shall require all appropriate staff members to comply with such a system as part of their professional responsibility.

The Superintendent, in conjunction with appropriate staff members, shall develop administrative guidelines for reporting student progress to parents which:

 A.ensure that both student and parent receive ample warning of a pending grade of "failure" or one that would adversely affect the student's status;

 B.enable the scheduling of parent-teacher conferences at such times and in such places as will ensure the greatest degree of participation by parents;

 C.specify the issuance of report cards at intervals of not more than nine (9) weeks.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines to ensure midterm progress reports are made to parents.
