Grades and reports of progress will be given out each nine weeks of school for all grades, third through sixth. If you do not receive a report card every nine weeks, it is recommended you call the teacher or request a teacher conference. Some teachers may send deficiency reports home so that you will know if there is a problem before the nine weeks ends. Mid nine weeks progress reports are sent home for grades 3rd-5th. If you wish to talk to a teacher(s) about grades or other concerns, please contact them during their planning period. Teachers will not be pulled out of classes for unscheduled conferences.
Curriculum at Adair County Elementary conforms to the Kentucky Program of Studies and Core Content and meets guidelines established by the district and state. Primary students are reported on the approved Primary Progress Report. It may be necessary for some students in the primary program to take five years to complete four years of work (kindergarten through third grade), which is how the ungraded primary is structured.
Elementary (grade 3-5) students will receive a progress report four (4) times a year on a regular nine (9) week schedule. Progress reports will be sent home at the mid-point of each nine week grading period.
All reports cards for grades 3-5 will be standards-based and will reflect mastery of standards as set by the state of Kentucky.
PROMOTION AND RETENTION
Students in grades 4 and 5 cannot fail more than one class and be passed to the next grade. District Policy 08.22 states that a student may not fail more than one subject and be promoted. It also states that a student may not fail math or reading and be promoted.
