The kindergarten through fifth-grade standards-based progress report is designed to provide a comprehensive picture of each child’s academic skills and the dispositions of the Mount Vernon Mind. This baseline information assists in supporting each child’s unique learning journey.
In addition to trimester reports, progress is tracked through each child’s individual student ePortfolio for ongoing feedback and collaboration towards mastery goals. Parent Conferences are also held regularly, and classwork is sent home through backpack mail for review.
Students' progress on the Mount Vernon Learning Outcomes, Mindsets, and Work Habits will be reported using the following indicators:
Novice. The student needs improvement in this skill. In addition to the remediation happening at school, students need more practice with this skill at home.
Emerging. The student does not yet consistently demonstrate this skill independently. Students should increase practice on these skills to become proficient.
Proficient. The student consistently demonstrates this skill independently. This is the benchmark, the goal.
Advanced. The student consistently exceeds expectations on this skill. This is meant to recognize exemplars of work that surpass developmental expectations.
The School uses progress reports to discern, map, and inform each child’s learning journey. Progress reports are intentionally written in student-friendly language to empower agency in our learners.
