STUDENT PROGRESS REPORTS TO PARENTS
Continuous and ongoing communication with parents around the progress and achievement of their children is a key component of the total learning process. While the Portland Public Schools has designated days in its calendar for parent/student/teacher conferencing, we understand and value the importance of regular communication between home and school.
All children, especially those of school age, are in a constant state of development. There are many variables constantly affecting their development, and many ways to evaluate progress. It is important that:
- Reports should provide accurate and complete reflections of significant indicators in student achievement;
- Reports should reflect the accomplishment relative to goals that are acceptable and understandable to both child and teacher;
- Behavior factors shall not be used to depress or inflate the reporting of academic achievement;
- Predictions beyond the immediate present situation shall not be included in the reports; and
- Teachers shall include the cognitive and affective progress of development noting strengths and weaknesses in both academic and emotional areas in their reports.
