Standards-Referenced Grading

The Wichita Public Schools are committed to providing fair, consistent, specific, and timely information regarding student progress towards agreed-upon common standards as well as feedback for next steps and growth areas.

Grades are to communicate what students know and can do.

This website is designed to support teachers, families, and leadership with Standards-Referenced Grading. The initiative to refine our grading practices and alignment to standards is part of the WPS Strategic Plan.
