The Windsor Central School District will unveil a new report card on Wednesday, November 21. The report card, which will be used in grades K-12, is the outcome of a multi-year project driven by national grading and reporting research, input from grading experts (including Dr. Thomas Guskey), consultations with college and university personnel, and ThoughtExchange survey feedback from the Windsor Community.
The Windsor Grading Task Force, comprised of forty volunteer stakeholders including parents, students, teachers, and administrators, met on a regular basis to make decisions on changes made to the grading and reporting process.
“I am incredibly proud of the work that the Windsor Grading Task Force has done to create a quality tool that will communicate student progress in a clear and personalized manner. This new communication tool will provide the feedback needed to continually grow our Windsor students as scholars and outstanding individuals,” said Dr. Jason A. Andrews, Superintendent of the Windsor Central School District.
The new report card will include teacher photos, ratings (1-4) on criteria that encompass both student behavior (Process Criteria) and academic learning (Product Criteria), quarterly course descriptions and personalized comments from teachers. These reports will be sent home in the mail and will also be available through the ESchool Parent Portal.
