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.
Over the next several months, we will be revealing videos through the eLedger to unpack the details of Standards Based Grading. Today is the first installment of the six session video series. Please click here to watch the seven minute introduction to Standards Based Grading. 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!
