Grading & Assessment

Recently, the School Board held a Study Session focused on Grading & Assessment. 
Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, BISD began the process of updating our kindergarten through 5th Grade Report Cards, now called Progress Reports. This work was accomplished through many hours of committee meetings involving stakeholders from each K-5 grade level and school building in BISD. The result is a Progress Report aligned with our curricula and assessments and is consistent across grade levels and schools. 

These new Progress Reports will be used as of January 2023, replacing our former K-5 Report Cards. Elementary principals and teachers will provide parents and guardians with additional information.
