Reports and Notices      ««


For each of the three trimesters students will receive one progress report and one report card. Progress reports are issued approximately half-way through a trimester, and report cards are generally issued within two weeks after a trimester ends. In both cases, students will be expected to provide proof that these reports have been shared with parents. Failure to do so will result in a detention and a disciplinary parent-teacher conference.


Students who are failing academically or misbehaving may be required to participate in a weekly progress report, and that report will be shared with parents. If you are required to participate, failure to complete the reports and/or share them with parents will result in a detention and a disciplinary parent-teacher conference.


Other reports and notices may include things such as CST and benchmark results, Internet agreements, cafeteria balances, and information about the progress of English Language Learners.
