Students Progress BP 5120
The primary responsibility of the professional educator within a system of public education
shall be to provide the best possible learning experience for the greatest number of students
while recognizing the needs of the individual child. Reporting continuous student progress
and achievement is consistent with this goal and should be considered an integral part of the
teaching and learning process. Reporting student progress and achievement is essential in
facilitating communication between the student, his parents or guardians, and those within the
teaching profession. Finally the reporting process is intended to assist teacher and learner in
evaluating the students mastery of established course and grade level objectives. It is the
intention in the Fremont Unified School District for a grade to:
A. Reflect academic achievement.
B. Be related to established evaluative criteria which are well understood by students and
parents and which are consistently interpreted by teachers.
C. Be accepted as an objective evaluation of performance and an indication of successful
performance at increasingly difficult levels of work.
Teachers will send out progress reports to families each Trimester at the elementary school. Parents should receive progress reports of students who are performing below standards every six weeks into each Trimester.
