All Kent School District families will receive first-semester report cards in the mail the week of February 22, 2021. Elementary schools will report student performance in meeting the district and state standards for learning during the 2020-2021 school year. Students will be marked with:

  • 4 performing at or above grade-level standard
  • 3 performing at grade-level standard
  • 2 performing below grade-level standard
  • 1 performing well below grade-level standard
  • N not assessed, limited observation or evidence

Progress reports will also include robust comments from the student’s teacher.

Elementary families have an opportunity to meet with teachers during conference week March 1-5. Please contact your student’s teacher or school to learn more about scheduling a conference.

Tips for a Successful Elementary Conference

Family Involvement

The first and most important step is your involvement. Attendance is essential to build a relationship with your child’s teacher.

Be On Time

Your time with the teacher is limited because you are not the only parent the teacher is meeting with – make the most of it.

Bring Questions

You may want to know how your child is performing, or if there is a particular subject where improvement is needed. Before the meeting, prioritize your questions.

Behavior At Home

Bring up anything happening at home that could affect your child’s behavior, learning, or participation in class.

Communication Going Forward

Ask what the preferred method of communication is such as phone calls, emails, or meetings.
