Language Art Parent's Meeting - All Grades
As some of you know, English Language Arts at Leander ISD is using a skills-reference system to grade. This is different than the percentage based system with which you may be familiar. In order to explain and answer any questions you may have concerning this grading system, CRMS is holding a parent night Monday, September 15 at 6:30pm – 7:30pm, in the Lecture Hall.
Among other things we will explain:
1) Why skills-reference?
2) Language Arts rubrics.
2) How skills-referenced grading works with txConnect.
3) How we will use the portfolios.
We invite you to come and bring your questions!
