Message from FUSD regarding Report Cards 
 
Dear Parents/Guardians,
 
The Fremont Unified School District has been moving toward full implementation of the Common Core State Standards in all of our schools. Our teachers have dedicated significant time and effort adapting their instruction and assessment of students using these new standards and they are doing amazing work!
 
With the intention of having an elementary report card that more closely reflects student mastery of the Common Core State Standards, the district developed a new report card this year. We also allowed sites to individually opt in or out of the new rubric-based grading scale for 2014-15.
Simply put, we tried to do too much at once without enough lead time, feedback from parents, staff, and students, and long-range planning. Though our intentions were in earnest, sometimes it’s necessary to self-assess and decide whether to stay on course or take a detour.
 
What does this mean for you and your children?
• For the remainder of the 2014-15 school year, the grading system and report cards will not change. The final report card you receive will be exactly like the previous two trimesters.
• For 2015-16, the elementary report card district-wide and at all grade levels will be letter grade-based (S/N in grades TK-K; O/ S/N in grades 1-3; and A-F in grades 4-6).
• The Assessment & Accountability department will create a report card task force next year to study elementary report cards and look for ways to improve the report card.
• Even as the report cards themselves will have letter grades only, teachers are encouraged to use a variety of assessments, including rubrics, in their day to day assessment of students.
 
Thank you for your commitment to our schools. If you have any interest in participating on the report card task force in 2015-16, please let your principal know.
 
 Sincerely,
Kim Wallace
Assistant Superintendent of Instruction
