Sample K-6 Report CardsHutchinson Public Schools has revamped report cards for kindergarten through sixth grade to better inform parents, students and care givers about their children. You may view examples of the report cards on our K-6 Report Card Samples page.
New Way of Reporting K-6 ProgressSo what does a "B" in third grade math really mean? Does the "B" in Mrs. Hutchinson's third grade math class mean the same as the "B" in Mrs. Salthawk's third grade class?
While the A-B-C-D-F grading scale is "comfortable," the system doesn't really provide much feedback to families. As a result, K-6 students in USD 308 schools will have a new College and Career Ready standards-based grade card this fall.
Parents will be able to see what skills are taught for each subject and grade level, how staff collectively defines four levels of proficiency and then how their student falls on the four-level continuum.
