NYS has adopted the Common Core Learning Standards and has aligned the NYS assessments to these Common Core Standards. The Diocese of Buffalo has developed a Standards Based Report Card in grades K-2 to ensure that your children are meeting these Common Core standards. The grading system uses a 1-4 point system (aligned with the NYS Assessments) to identify strengths and weaknesses in each standard area. This grading system is designed to have teachers focus on individual skills and record student proficiency on each skill. This system will lead to improved communication with parents on how you can support your child's learning.
Participation in Response to Intervention helps educators track adequate progress in Reading to ensure that each student is receiving Reading instruction that meets his/her needs.
