Standards-Based Report Card
During the 2014-2015 school year, the Woodbridge School District implemented a standards-based report card in First through Sixth Grade. A committee of teachers, curriculum specialists, administrators and members of the district’s technology department worked diligently to create this new standards-based report card. The new report card is comprehensive and detailed in the way it reflects each child’s progress. It will assist parents and educators in identifying both strengths and areas requiring further development. The expectation is that this new reporting system will be used as a tool to improve student growth over time by promoting more personalized learning for every child.
