To help parents and families to understand their child’s academic progress, Tulsa Public Schools has new, simplified report cards for first through fifth graders.
A 30-member team of teachers, school leaders, and district staff worked to improve our report cards and make it easier for parents to know how their students are performing academically, personally, and socially, if their students are reaching grade-level learning, and how they are doing relative to their classmates.
The new report card includes quarterly and year-to-date information on students' attendance.
Parents and families will also gain insight into how their students are developing socially and emotionally with a section reporting a child’s social emotional learning competencies.
The report card will have student grades for each class they are taking with a letter and percentage for each quarter. Cumulative grades will be finalized at the end of the fourth quarter.
A new addition to the report card shows the student’s MAP scores and gives adults a comprehensive understanding of how their student did on three tests given throughout the year that measures the student’s academic knowledge, skills, and abilities. There are also easy-to-read charts to compare student results with district and national averages.
Finally, on the back of the report card is a place for teachers to directly communicate with families by leaving comments.
This new report card is designed to be easy to understand and serve as a useful tool for parents and families to stay updated and engaged with their child’s school experiences.
If you have questions about your child’s progress or about the new report card, please contact your child’s teacher or school leader.
