With the end of the first trimester, we face more challenges than ever to ensure a high academic rigor for all students in order to meet their grade level standards and be successful in the California Standards Test –CST. As your children will be receiving their report cards the week of November 4-8, take the opportunity to praise your child for their success in school and discuss and develop a plan of action for improvement in the areas of concern. We will celebrate student success during the Trimester Awards Assemblies in the month of November.
If your child has been retained and the report card is not positive, you need to discuss interventions with the classroom teacher. It is essential that your child improve grades. Students not performing at grade level may require additional interventions and teachers will explain that a child not performing at grade level may be considered for retention at the end of the year, unless significant progress is made by the third trimester.
For those children that are having academic difficulties, we have been implementing interventions in school based on their needs. We target these students under the guidance of the No Child Left Behind Act to help them achieve proficiency at their grade level based on the California Grade Level Standards. Some of them may be receiving one or more of the following types of intervention: Flexible grade level groupings for language arts, ELD rotations by CELDT levels, Read 180 System 44 for grades 3-4 and RSP for students with identified disabilities.
If your child is not doing so well, motivate them to improve by developing a plan for improvement that may include:
