If the Lakeville school board’s officers look familiar in 2014, it’s because all four will be continuing in the same roles as last year. At last week’s meeting, the board re-elected Roz Peterson as chairman and Jim Skelly as vice chairman. Michelle Volk and Bob Erickson were re-elected as clerk and treasurer, respectively.
District to debut new report cards next year
Beginning in 2014-15, parents and students at the district’s elementary schools will receive a new kind of report card.
Last month, the school board unanimously approved a standards-based grading and reporting system. Report cards will show whether a student is exceeding, meeting or below a certain standard, rather than using the current number-based grading system (1, 2, 3 or 4). The system will report a student’s mastery of specific academic skills within each subject area. It also will indicate how a student is doing on behavior and social skills.
