The teachers, along with their regular teaching duties, have had some assignlnents of their own. During our "Late Starts" every other Wednesday, we have been working hard to develop Stan- dards-Based Report Cards. This is a huge undertaking, but we hope to implement this new sys- tem of grading in the fidl of 2018. Why are we making the switch? Standards-based grading is designed to give teachers, par- ents and students a more clear and accurate description of aca- demic progress relative to content standards. Park River Area Ele- mentary tbllows North Dakota Academic Standards in each sub- ject area. These standards specify I'm proud that our staff has embarked on the journey! As we transition to a more unitbm] grading practice we are certain to encounter many trials and tribu- lations, but in the long run this type of grading will give every- one a clearer more accurate rep- resentation of each student's academic knowledge. In closing, a HUGE shout out toJana Gudmundson! She re- cently wrote and received an Ed- ucational Teclmology Council grant, the only one awarded in the state of North Dakota! The overall goal of this grant is to fund staff development and purchase additional technology resources aimed toward s.trength- ening students' 21st Century skills. As a staff, we are looking forward to implementing this what students should know and grant and we know the students be able to dd at evm ade leVeL wilt enjoy it!
