Traditionally, K-5 students receive a formal report of progress following the end of the first trimester in November. However, due to our post-Labor Day start, shortened first trimester, and change in instructional delivery (remote to hybrid), the RTSD School Board approved a change to how we issue progress reports for the 2020-21 school year.
Students will receive two formal progress reports, one in February and one in June. Additionally, teachers will host Parent-Teacher conferences in November and March to share student progress, review assessment data, and identify next steps in supporting students’ academic and social-emotional growth.
