Elementary Report Card
The K-5 report cards are aligned to learning standards and reflect updates in our curriculum and instruction.
These report cards include category titles and descriptors reflecting the New York State and District standards, grading keys reflecting student progress toward State and District standards (4-1 scale), and Effort/Habits of Learning (4-1 scale), reflecting student skills necessary to be a successful learner.
The report card is accessed online through Infinite Campus. If you do not have access to the Parent Portal, you will not be able to view the report card. However, gaining access is easy! Information can be found on our district website. Click on the “Quick Link” tab at the top of any page; the drop down menu will have a selection “Infinite Campus for Parent/Students.” Click here and you will find all the information you need to gain access to the Parent Portal.
The links below will connect you to: a parent presentation explaining the new report card that was provided by principals at November PTA meetings, an Elementary Report Card Guide describing our new report card, and samples of the actual report cards that the students will receive this year. Following these links are some helpful tips for parents on what you can do to help your child at home.
