Report cards are distributed at the end of each quarter. In each area, teachers will communicate the expectations of each standard on the report card, and will show your child’s progress in each concept. Parents will have opportunities to discuss students’ progress and work at parent-teacher conferences, which are scheduled three times a year, or at any time by contacting their child’s teacher.
Lafayette’s students in the 3rd through 5th grades take an assessment test in the spring knows as the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). The PARCC assessment is computer-based and matches the high expectations of the Common Core standards, requiring students to think critically and solve real-world problems. The PARCC test assesses what children are learning in school and helps teachers and parents know if students are on track for success in college and careers. For more information about the PARCC, including what to expect and how to prepare, please visit the DCPS website here.
