The Nazareth Area School District uses a standards-based report card for K–6. Our K-6 Report Card provides families with information about children’s progress toward Pennsylvania State Standards. In addition, it defines the expectations for mastery on grade-specific skills and knowledge. The report card identifies areas of strength and goals to assist teachers and families in supporting students.
The purpose of standards-based grading is to raise student achievement by clearly communicating a student’s progress toward learning outcomes in a timely, fair, accurate, and specific manner. The Nazareth Area School District in K-6 developed the following global performance descriptors in a Standards-Based Report Card, there are four Performance Descriptors:
4: Student is exceeding grade level expectations at this time.
