Online Report Card Companion Documents


The online report card includes all major subject areas and some descriptors. Due to space limitations, however, it does not provide all of the information that was included in the former report card. In order to offer parents the same level of detail, we have created a companion document for each grade level. The companion document can be read alongside the online report card. It includes all of the strands and descriptors from the most recent report card.
