505.1 Student Progress Reports and Conferences

Code No. 505.1


Students will receive a progress report at the end of each grading period. Students, who are doing poorly, and their parents/ legal guardians, are notified prior to the end of the grading period in order to have an opportunity to improve their grade. The board encourages the notification of students who have made marked improvement prior to the end of the grading period.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held to keep the parents/ legal guardians informed.

Parents/legal guardians, teachers, or principals may request a conference for students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve in addition to the scheduled conference time. Parents/legal guardians and students are encouraged to discuss the student's progress or other matters with the student's teacher.

NOTE: This is a mandatory policy. The second paragraph should be written to reflect the school district's practice.
