Proficiency Based Education

This year students will be assessed using the 1- 4 scale for proficiency.  We will send out progress reports quarterly throughout the year and a report card at the end of the year.  

Grades K-5 (policy IKA)

Kindergarten through grade 5 will employ a consistent system of scoring that reports student learning progress and achievement across the 4-point scale that aligns Proficiency Levels with Proficiency Descriptions.

Using rubrics and scoring guides, individual assessments will be scored in accordance with the following Proficiency Levels and Proficiency Descriptions:
