Standards and Grading
Common Core and Colorado standards form the basis for instruction in First Grade instruction. Our standards-based report card reflects your child's progress in achieving mastery of benchmarks aligned with these standards.
Standards-based grading (SBG) in first grade uses a 4,3,2,1 scale. Please see the attached diagram that we use with our first graders to help them understand the grading process and to aid in setting goals for their learning.
