Sherman ISD implemented a new Standard Based Report Card last year.
This new grading system reflects how students are learning. It provides a guide for teachers, students, and parents regarding expectation for the grade level. It allows for continuity across the district regarding expectations for students. It provides a clear way to communicate learning expectations to parents. It also focuses on student knowledge of the standards and measures behavior, work habits and attitude separately.
The Marking System- students are marked on a scale ranging from 1-4 for each item on the report card to reflect the state standards/guidelines for the grade.
