Welcome to Lakeland Schools

Report Card Changes

As part of the implementation of the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards, you will see some updated language on your child’s next report card. The updates can be found in the ELA sections under the Foundational Reading Skills, Reading and Writing areas, as well as in Kindergarten and Grade 4 Mathematics. The changes are grade specific, and were adjusted to reflect alignment to the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards. 

The new standards are the result of over two years of collaborative work to ensure New York State has the best learning standards for our students. 

Updated Report Card Language By Grade:
Grade 1
Grade 2
Grade 3
Grade 4
Grade 5 

Additional information about the timeline for implementation in schools is available from Standards and Assessment Implementation Timeline.

If you have any questions at all about your child’s report card, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or school principal.

Thank you,
