This year, Cawley Middle School will be using a competency-based reporting system. On November 28, at 6:30 pm in the Cawley Media Center, Principal, Matthew Benson, Assistant Principal, Brad Largy, Math Accountability and Assessment Director, Meghan Largy and Assistant Superintendent, Marge Polak will present the new middle school competency based report cards to parents.
Competencies are student-learning targets that represent key content-specific concepts, skills, and knowledge. A competency is achieved when a student demonstrates, through performance and over a period of time with multiple opportunities, that they can use the knowledge, skills and concepts learned. This reporting system is new for students in grades 6, 7 and 8 this year.
As part of this transition, report cards will be sent home three times a year with the first report card scheduled to go home on Friday, December 7. Please join us on November 28 at 6:30 pm to learn more about the purpose of transitioning to a competency-based reporting system.
