We want to communicate what your child knows and is able to do through Standards-Referenced Grading. Wichita Public Schools now uses a 0-4 point grading scale. Progress reports have been updated to clearly reflect the standard students are working toward. Academic standards and behavior standards are graded separately. Standard-Referenced Grading practices are common across all WPS
elementary schools. Your child’s progress report will clearly communicate their success toward learning goals. Please visit with your child’s teacher about your child’s progress and if you have any questions. More information, including sample progress reports, can be found at www.usd259.org/Page/grading.
