At iLEAD Agua Dulce, we issue Reports of Progress (ROPs), which might be compared to a traditional report card; however, instead of recording letter grades, we record a learner’s growth based on how consistently the learner applies academic and social-emotional skills at each determined point in the year.
A Report of Progress has three major components. First is the progress and/or grade part of the report. This is an overall snapshot of the learner’s progress at concepts, skills, and standards. Each learner will receive a progress descriptor as shown in the legend below:
The second part of the ROP is the narrative. Each learner will have narratives written by their facilitator. These narratives are the most rewarding for parents, as they gain a true understanding of their child’s progress and educational experience. The narrative progress report recognizes that each child is unique and one’s development cannot be fully understood or assisted by using a checklist approach. It gives a more detailed description of the child’s work and choices of work. A narrative report assures parents and learners that the facilitator really understands and cares about each child.
The last part is the Social-Emotional ROP. The development of independence, initiative, responsibility, confidence, social awareness, cooperation, concentration, helpfulness, and commitment to work is a crucial element of the iLEAD curriculum. Our ROP combines the current learner outcomes (based on the 7 Habits) and the Character Lab Program, which focuses on each learner’s strengths, skills, and mind-set.
If you have any questions regarding the ROP at iLEAD Agua Dulce, we encourage you to reach out to your child’s facilitator.
