Lower Merion School District


Elementary Report Cards

During the 2017-18 school year, the fourth grade piloted a new report card for students. After a successful pilot, and enhancements that resulted from parent and teacher feedback, the new report card was adopted for grades 3, 4, and 5 effective during the 2018-19 school year. The report card features improved readability, more targeted feedback on grade-specific skills, and an expanded narrative that provides meaningful feedback for students and families on progress toward the District’s transformative goals.

The report card revisions have been driven by the District’s strategic plan, All Forward. Teachers have been collaborating with members of the curriculum team to broaden our reporting to include values reflected in the strategic plan, including fostering growth mindset, student innovation, and other measures of the Habits of Mind.

The goal for this change is to provide families and students with more in-depth and meaningful feedback on progress and learning.
