We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a report card. Once a year, we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card. This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There also is information about how our school measured against federal participation targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school.
Each year, schools receive a letter grade to describe its performance. These school performance grades are comprised of student achievement (80 percent) and growth (20 percent). Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
Our school’s full Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards’ website at schoolreportcards.nc.gov , Our school district’s report also is available on the Report Card website. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools that were open during the 2016-17 school year.
The numbers only tell part of the story. At Bolton, we are proud of the following special activities that are underway. We have begun a year-long emphasis on Guided Math. This provides students with the opportunity to close individual learning gaps. We truly appreciate our partnerships with community supporters that provide additional tutoring and support during the school day. Bolton has an extremely hard working staff that is absolutely committed to seeing our school not only continue to meet growth but to exceed growth.
State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children’s education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires schools to issue Report Cards.
At Bolton Elementary your involvement is very important to our success! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
