About the Elementary Progress Report

DCSD redesigned the EPR in December 2015. In addition to providing families with the same information they expect – about the progress of their child in reading, writing, and math skills – the EPR now also provides parents/guardians with information about how students are doing on the District's World Class Outcomes and the 4Cs (Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration), as well as 21st century skills that are integrated into student learning. 


Customized for each school community & student 
Principals and teachers have the ability to align the tool with their school community's needs. For instance, an International Baccalaureate school may choose to integrate the inter-disciplinary themes students are studying, while a Leader in Me school might decide to include progress on Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Additionally, the teachers can personalize the report to match individual students. For instance, they can link a student's Individual Plan or even electronic portfolio and they can differentiate the components of the Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum (GVC) that they report on.

Our goal: Increased partnership with families
By redesigning the EPR, we hope to help families understand where their child’s successes are, as well as to uncover opportunities for continued practice and growth, and ultimately to partner with families to champion student success and prepare them for college and career.

If you have questions, you may choose to reach out to your child’s teacher or principal.  In many cases, they will be best equipped to talk about how the report is being used at their specific school and how it has been customized to meet the school community’s needs.

Why a New Elementary Progress Report

The Elementary Progress Report was updated and redesigned in December 2015. At Douglas County School District, we know that every one of our students is unique with different interests, challenges, and strengths. They learn in their own ways and at their own pace. For that reason we are committed to not only personalizing learning to meet their specific needs, but also providing information needed so families can support and encourage their growth. That is why DCSD is working to rebuild the Elementary Progress Report.
