Lake Hamilton educators use state standards to set academic expectations for mastery in each subject area or grade level. Our school district is currently implementing a standards-based grading and reporting system in all content areas for kindergarten- 5th grade and in mathematics for 6th-12th grade.  The purpose of standards-based grading is to ensure that all students are acquiring the knowledge and skills deemed essential for life-long success. If students struggle to master expected learning goals, they will receive additional instruction and assessment opportunities. Kindergarten and 1st grade have used this standards-based grading approach for many years because it provides parents with a clear picture of the progress their child is making toward mastery of essential skills.   

Here are some sample report cards/grading sheets using standards based grading:
