Standards-Based Reporting (K-2)

  • Midway ISD uses a standards-based report card for students in Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) creates a set of learning standards for each grade level and content areas. These standards describe what each child should learn and be able to do at each grade level in all subjects. The report card is designed to give specific information about a child's progress academically, socially, and emotionally.  Standards-based report cards provide a higher level of consistency of expectations among teachers across the district. The report card helps students, teachers, and parents focus on learning standards, while at the same time giving students an opportunity to receive help if they are not making adequate progress. Parents will know which standards their child has learned and which skills their child needs to learn to be well-prepared for the next grade level.
