Thank you for your patience as this week’s snow delayed the release of report cards until this afternoon. Please be aware that report cards are now available to be viewed through the iParent/iStudent portal.
As you review your child’s progress, you will notice a new addition to this year’s report card. In addition to grades for each course, each report card now includes an update on your child’s achievement of 21st century learning expectations.
Beginning this year, Nipmuc has introduced the teaching and assessment of 21st century learning expectations as a key part of our curriculum. Teaching 21st century skills allows us not only to ensure that our students have mastered the subject-matter and content of the curriculum, but also that they have the skills needed to apply their learning. We are excited about this initiative and how it will help us to ensure that our students are ready for life in college, careers, and the community.
Included below are screencasts, frequently asked questions, and copies of the school-wide rubrics that we use to measure student achievement.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
