    Dear Parent/Guardian:

     

    At North Forsyth we want to make sure that we are providing you with the most up-to-date information about your student’s academic progress.  Students receive report cards, and parents and students have access to students’ grades in PowerSchool.

     

    We also provide information about our school through the North Carolina School Report Card.  This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class size, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality.  There is also information about how our school measured against federal participation targets and student discipline.

     

    Each year, schools receive a letter grade to describe its performance.  The school performance grades are comprised of student achievement and growth.  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.  If you need help accessing or understanding the Report Card, please contact our Guidance Office.

     

    As we all know, numbers only tell a part of the story.  We are proud of the work we are doing to improve instruction, maintain our positive school culture and build on years of tradition.  

     

    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 North, we also value your involvement and appreciate your investment in your child.  Please feel free to contact me or our Family Engagement Coordinator, Cynthia Scales, if you have questions or need assistance.

     

    Thank you for your support of North Forsyth.

     

    Sincerely,



    Melita Wise
