As part of the negotiations process between Bellevue School District and the Bellevue Education Association last spring, a change was made to the number of elementary written progress reports teachers will complete each year. In the past, teachers provided a written progress report (report card) three times per school year.
In an effort to invest more time supporting students in the classroom, the number of required written progress reports completed by teachers is being reduced from three to two. Teachers will continue to provide additional feedback to parents regarding student progress in the fall during parent-teacher conferences. These conferences will include assessment data and overall progress made by each student. Students who qualify for Special Education services and have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will continue to receive the progress reports identified in their IEP.
With this change, parents of elementary students can expect feedback from their child’s teacher in the fall during the parent conference, a written progress report the first week in February and again in June. Throughout the year, parents can always reach out to teachers with questions or concerns about their child’s progress.
We thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!
