Your Child’s Educational Progress
All families play in an important role in supporting their student’s success in school. One way to support your student, at any age, is to monitor their academic progress. But what do we mean when we talk about academic progress?
Students are expected to meet certain learning standards set by the State. Schools teach students based on those learning standards. They then report to families on how their student is progressing toward meeting those learning standards. This reporting often comes in the form of report cards, standardized test scores, and teacher reports and observations.
Families can also tell if their child is learning by observing what their children do at home, and then provide such feedback to teachers.
