Elementary Report Card

Jeffco elementary schools report progress three times each academic year, or roughly every 12 weeks: mid-November, early-March and at the end of the school year. The Elementary Report Card is a standards-based reporting tool. It is designed to provide:

  • Information to parents about how a child is progressing toward meeting the end of year exepectations from Colorado Academic Standards. Standards specify what all students should know, understand and be able to do.
  • A summary of how a child is developing life and workforce readiness skills.

To understand what students should be learning by grade level, please review the Curriculum Guides. This course of study is based on Colorado Academic Standards, developed by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). CDE has created parent guides to to the Colorado Academic Standards for kindergarten through 5th-grade.


The academic performance levels are as follows:

  • 4 Exceeding Standards indicates that the student consistently exceeds end of year grade-level academic standards and expectations
  • 3 Meeting Standards indicates that the student demonstrates end of year grade-level academic standards and expectations
  • 2 Progressing Toward Standard indicates that the student is demonstrating basic knowledge and skills toward the end of year grade-level academic standards and expectations,   of the expected learning
  • 1 Insufficient progress toward the standard indicates that the student has partical understanding of some of the knowledge and skills demonstrated for the end of  year grade-level academic standards and expectations
  • N/A Not Assessed at this time indicates that the end of  year grade-level academic standards and expectations have not been assessed during this grading period.


Before making a determination regarding student's proficiency and marking it on the report card, teachers analyze a student's progress from multiple measures over the course of the reporting period. It is important to note that teachers have been reviewing the results of assessments and student work throughout the reporting period to determine next steps for instruction. The analysis for student proficiency noted on the report card is based on key pieces of evidence:

  • Collecting key samples of student work in a body of evidence.
  • Analyzing the entire body of evidence in comparison to grade level proficiency (as identified by the Colorado Department of Education and Jeffco Curriculum Alignment Project).
