Kristin Dixon has reported in that the Religion Standards Review Process is nearing completion. In the on-line packet of materials, the Religion Committee is poised to make a recommendation for our Religion section of the report card. Additionally, the English Language Arts Committee has begun a review process, and this work will lead to a recommendation for PreK - 8 report card standards. What does a standards-based report card look like? How can this be accomplished in the PowerSchool
