  1. New Report Cards K-6
Donna Madore, Assistant Superintendent, described the process involved in developing the new Augusta School Department report cards for grades K-6.  The Proficiency-Based law that was effective 2012 – 2013 mandates that schools evaluate proficiency-based standards.  We’ve aligned our curriculum to the standards and we now reflect that on our new report cards.  The standards are listed on our website by grade level for parents.  We will have an open house where teachers will explain the expectations, parent teacher conferences, and resources for parents to use as a guide.  Parent forums, one for each elementary school, would be another opportunity for parents to learn about the new report cards.

Motion by Jennifer Neumeyer to move the proposed Academic Performance Standards to the board for approval, second by Katie Vose, so moved, 2-0.

Meeting adjourned at 6:21 p.m.
