STANDARDS-BASED GRADING & REPORTING




The purpose of standards-based reporting is to communicate what your child should know and be able to do.  It is intended to inform you about learning successes and ways we can work together to help your child grow academically. Anderson School District 4 has developed parent and student-friendly power standards for each grade level.  We will teach all SC standards; however, power standards have the greatest impact on readiness for the next grade level.  Click on the grade-level below for additional information.


SC COLLEGE AND CAREER-READY STANDARDS


South Carolina is committed to ensuring our students have the highest academic standards so they are prepared to succeed in college, career and beyond. In March of 2015, the state adopted the new South Carolina College and Career-Ready Standards. These standards define the knowledge and skills in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics that children in kindergarten through grade 12 need to have to be college and career ready for the 21st century.

 Educators, parents, business leaders, and community leaders throughout the state met and wrote these standards. The state’s colleges and universities reviewed the standards and agreed that students who met these standards would be ready for college and career upon graduating. In fact, the state has endorsed the following Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. The profile focuses on the key knowledge, skills and characteristics that children need to have upon graduation from high school.

For complete SC Standards for each subject, visit the SC Department of Education website and view what your child will learn this year.
