5420 Policy Reporting Student Progress

The Board of Education 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 or
electronic reports, 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 procedures for reporting student
progress to parents which:
    A. Use various methods of reporting appropriate to grade level and curriculum content;
    B. 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;
    C. Enable the scheduling of parent-teacher conferences at such times and in such places as will ensure the
        greatest degree of participation by parents;
    D. Specify the issuance of report cards at designated intervals;
    E. Ensure a continual review and improvement of methods of reporting student progress to parents.
