Dear parents and guardians,
As I have mentioned in a previous eLedger, St. Mary’s Spring Academy is excited to introduce Standards Based Grading in grades kindergarten through third grade for the 2021-22 school year. Standards Based Grading is a best practice initiative the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is leading all of its schools towards implementing in the coming school year.
Today is the fourth installment of our six session video series. Please click here to further unpack standards based grading and reaching all students. The video unpacks the breakdown of power standards and supporting goal setting for individual students.
The objective of the video series is to educate parents in short videos to unpack Standard Based Grading. The series intends to deliver an education and mindshift to understand Standards Based Grading, why Standards Based Grading is best practice and how Standards Based Grading functions with the parent and teacher supporting the student’s journey.
Thank you for your partnership!
