Assessment & Reporting

Report Cards

Report cards are sent home twice per year for all students, in January and at the end of June. We ask that you discuss and analyze and celebrate your child's report card with them. See our Calendar page for exact dates.

Progress Reports for Grades K-6

At Richmond School we have established five opportunities for sharing student progress. At the beginning of the school year, usually in September, we schedule Parent Teacher Conferences so that parents can meet the teacher and share information about their children. We recognize that often there is important information that parents can give us which will help us better meet the needs of individual students. 

The second and forth are tremendous learning and leadership opportunities where students share their learning. The third and fifth are formal report cards that will be sent home. The report card, curriculum newsletter and the program of studies are closely connected. A curriculum newsletter is included every reporting period and contains specific details of the concepts, themes or units your child has been learning. Please take time to read it carefully and keep it together with your report card package. The final report card document is sent home for your records on the last student day in June.

​Assessment and Reporting at the CBE

​We know it is important for parents/guardians to understand how their children are doing in school. Research shows that students are more successful with active parent/guardian involvement.

The report card is one component in communicating student learning. In addition to the report card, schools communicate with parents/guardians about student progress on an ongoing basis in a variety of ways. 

Assessment happens every day, in every classroom, throughout the school year. Assessing a student’s progress is one of the most important ways we support the continued learning of our students.

We have developed some resources related to assessment and report cards, and to help you learn more about your child's learning. As more resources are developed, you will find them here.​ 

Digital report cards are available through MyCBE / PowerSchool​. For help with accessing student assessment and reporting information, please refer to the information in the MyCBE/PowerSchool Support section of our website. 

Visit the CBE website for more information on Assessment & Reporting at the CBE. ​​​
