Inspiring a Community of Achievement

Standards Based Report Cards

Marion City Schools is always seeking to improve and personalize learning for each and every student.  Starting in the 2021-2022 school year, Marion City School Elementary Families will begin receiving more personalized and specific student report cards about their child’s progress.  These reports will shift from a traditional A-F letter grade that summarizes student learning, which often includes non-academic components such as participation and behavior, to a standards based report. This report will provide a deeper, more detailed understanding of each student’s performance in each academic area they are learning, as well as  specific information about performance in areas such as behavior and participation.  The standards based reports will allow families and students to receive clear communication regarding what a student knows and is able to do and will allow for improved communication and more personalized support for each student and their family.



What changes will I see?

The updated report cards will look different than traditional report cards have. Each report will include more specific information around expected areas of learning within each academic area.  The traditional letter grades of A-F will be replaced with numbers based on a student’s progression of learning.  The scores are 0-3. These levels clearly define what students know and are able to do in terms of their grade level standard.  These proficiency scales will reflect the content taught specifically by your child’s classroom teacher.

How will I access student grades and progress?


Marion City Schools will still be using PowerSchool for reporting scores for students. You will be able to view your child’s activity within the platform. Students and families will continue to receive report cards at the end of each quarter and interim reports midway through each quarter. We will send a sample report card home soon.
