FCPS Holds Community Meetings About New Progress Reports

New progress reports for elementary school students start countywide in fall 2012.

Fairfax County Public Schools will begin using new progress reports for elementary school students in fall 2012. 

Community meetings about the new progress report will be in April—one will be at Hayfield Secondary School (details below).

According to FCPS, the new progress report will be based on curriculum standards and will:

  • Provide parents with comprehensive information about how their child is learning.
  • Align with the Program of Studies (POS) curriculum students are learning.
  • Provide teachers with resources to communicate a more exact and consistent assessment.
  • Incorporate research-based best practices in student grading and reporting.
  • Report Life, Work, and Citizenship skills separately from academic achievement.

The dates and locations of the community meetings are:

Tuesday, April 10
7–8:30 p.m.
- Cafeteria

Wednesday, April 11
7-8:30 p.m.
- Cafeteria

Wednesday, April 18
7-8:30 p.m.  
- Recital Hall

Wednesday, April 25
7-8:30 pm  
- Cafeteria B

To attend a meeting, register online in English or Spanish; or contact your school’s parent liaison.

During the 2011-12 school year, selected elementary schools will have been involved in various phases of testing the new progress reports prior to the all-system roll-out for the 2012-13 school year, according to FCPS.

Ten schools which have been field testing the standards-based progress report for the past two years began using the new progress report beginning fall 2011.
