How to use a CCSS Standards-based report card with student with IEPs?

Sep 3, 2013 3:41pm

We have moved this year to a standards-based report card with grades K-5 using a 3-2-1 reporting scale. Realizing that there will be holes to fill the higher up we go in grade level we have devised rubrics to help students, parents, and teachers understand our expectations. But now we have concerns about how to report on students with IEPs. We are in transisition with our IEP goal wrinting now too.

      Our district has not moved to a CCSS report card. They have, however, asked us to teach the CCSS. What's the best way to align with an old report card?

        We tried aligning with our old report card but it just didn't work. We needed a new report card since it was difficult teaching the CCSS but reporting using our old learning standards. We know we will be in transition for a while till our students have had the opportunity to master the standards from K up so going with quarter rubrics will allow us to grow with our students and continue to raise expectations. We were having a difficult time "clearing our plate" of the standards that no longer applied and adding the appropriate rigor of the new. Felt like we were still teaching a mile wide and an inch deep till we could focus just on CCSS and then actually have a tool to report to parents their child's level of mastery on standards and not a blanket grade for a subject.
