WSC Progress Reports - How to Support Your Middle School Child

posted Dec 2, 2011, 8:40 AM by Suzannah Ohring
In November, students and their parents received progress reports which were designed by WSC to communicate to parents how their children are progressing in regard to the Common Core Standards.  Parents should take the time to read the Principal's Progress Report Letter to learn about its development and what families can learn from the report.   The Letter also discusses "coaching", our report card schedule and student-led conferences, which will be held in January.  If you have not received your child's progress report,  please ask your child for it!

Information for parents from the DOE about Common Core Standards and how parents can support the Common Core Standards at home
The Common Core Standards were developed by educators and other experts based on research and lessons learned from top-performing countries.  The standards describe the skills and knowledge our students need to succeed in a rapidly changing world, including the ability to think creatively, solve real-world problems, make effective arguments and engage in debates.

Students progress is a shared priority for teachers, principals, and families.  To learn more about the Common Core and how you can support your studnet at home, visit the Common Core Library at Resources.
