NPS Report Card K-5

Welcome! Naugatuck's new K-5 report card took more than a year to develop. A group of teachers, administrators and parents came together to understand the purpose of a report card and make decisions about what to communicate and how best to communicate it.

The purpose of the report card is clearly stated at the top of the report card - we value student growth and progress, and we value communication between families and schools.

Progress bars capture where students are in their learning. Each indicator is assessed by teachers with a developmentally appropriate, grade level scoring guide that describes what competence for each indicator looks like.

Progress is also captured through different shadings on the bar, so that families can track when progress was made by their student.

The subject area and competencies are clearly stated, and indicators that measure growth toward a competency are captured below with a progress bar.

Competencies and scoring guides are available by grade level in the navigation bar of the web page.

Understanding the new report card

Why a new report card?

Naugatuck Public Schools has developed high expectations for student performance in the form of competencies. These competencies are developmentally appropriate and aligned with state and national standards. The new report card captures student growth and progress toward competence.

Indicators were developed for each competency so that students, their families, and teachers could capture what skills and knowledge constituted competence in a subject area. These indicators are supported with scoring guides, which describe them along a progression.

Fifth grade families will see teacher comments for both STEM and Humanities.
