Grading and Reporting

Return to the Parent Handbook Page.

All elementary schools will continue to report grades based on grade-level expectations in Grades K-5. Teachers in Grades K-5 will report progress using a standards based report card.

At Back-to-School Night, teachers will give you specific information about grading in their classrooms. During the year, we will continue to communicate with you about student performance in many ways. Teachers will use report cards, conferences, progress reports, e-mail, and/or notes home to keep you up-to-date on your child’s performance in school.

Interim reports and end of year grades may be accessed through the myMCPS Parent Portal.

Report cards are distributed four times a year, at the end of each of the nine-week grading periods. The report cards are sent home with students in November, February, and April. They are mailed home in June.
