Athens ISD has recently adopted a standard based report card for all students in kindergarten through fifth grade.. This type of report card records a child’s progress toward meeting state and district standards in areas of student performance. It gives specific information on a student’s level of proficiency on a given standard.
An important benefit of the standards-based report card centers on providing parents/guardians a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses on each child based on the standards (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS). It does not matter where the child starts, but where he/she finishes. The report card is a standard based continuum, meaning that progress is reports on the TEKS your child is expected to master at each grade level. The continuum ranges from performance level 1 to performance level 4.
