It’s report card time, the perfect time for reflection and for planning. At this time in the year, parents should be able to look back and list things that were learned in each subject, as well as areas that could use some improvement or enrichment. In fact, your children should be the ones to tell you. As a parent, you know your child the best. Are you pleased with the list? Do you think there could have been more items in the “learned” column? This webinar will provide information about the types of questions you should be asking of teachers specific to the child’s achievement in the classroom, what you need to know about reviewing your child’s IEP, and how to make a plan involving specific strategies which will provide the greatest opportunity for your child to be successful.

Learning Objectives

  • How do teachers arrive at marks for the report cards?

  • How can report cards be used to drive improvement for students not meeting expectations, meeting expectations and exceeding expectations?
