Laramie County School District #2 is working on improving how we report student’s scores and growth over time through a meaningful reporting system.  This includes designing report cards that clearly communicate academic progress.  We are currently studying standards-referenced reporting systems.

On December 1, from 8:00 am- 3:00 at Pine Bluffs Elementary,  we have Tom Schimmer coming to provide professional development to district staff on standards-based grading.  He is the renowned author of Grading from the Inside Out:  Bringing Accuracy to Student Assessment Through a Standards-Based Mindset.  We are very excited to hear about his research and personal experiences with standards-based grading.  

We know that some parents might be interested in learning more about standards-referenced grading.  Although the training is designed for instructional staff, we have limited space available for others to attend.   If you would like to attend this professional development day and hear more about standards-based grading, please contact our principal.


Friday school in December- December 15th only.  Your child’s teacher will call and make arrangements with you if they will be asked to attend.


Christmas Break- December 21-January 1st- Full day of school on Dec 20th & return to school on January 2nd.
