Elementary Report Cards

In an effort to more closely align report cards with the Michigan State Common Core Standards, a committee of five Battle Creek Public School employees met throughout last school year to revise and present a new elementary report card. The committee, comprised of two teachers, two district leaders, and a union representative, welcomes your feedback as the report cards have been approved by the Board of Education as "living documents", allowing flexibility for refinements. This space is being used to not only share the new report cards with you, but to share Parent Companion documents for ELA and Math, as well as an Effort Rubric to understand how Effort is graded, and a Tri-fold describing the new grade marks, how attendance and student success are linked, and homework expectations.
