Student Academic Progress

Tulare City Schools believes that communication between parents and teachers by means of a report card is essential to developing a positive partnership between home and school. Recently, Tulare City Schools has taken a first step in moving from traditional to standards based report cards (SBRC), in grades 1-6.

The purpose of standards based report cards is to establish an equitable measure that clearly communicates student progress toward mastery of grade level standards. It is our hope that a SBRC will provide more information to parents about their child’s progress and social development.

During the 2017-18 school year, we will pilot the new standards based report card on a limited basis, with full implementation across the district in 2018-19. Below you will find samples of both traditional and standards based report cards along with other documents and resources.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the assistant superintendent of student services, at 600 N. Cherry, Tulare, CA 93274, (559) 685-7221 or the principal at your school.

Parent Conferences

We invite and encourage you to meet with your child’s teacher anytime during the school year. If you have a question or a concern or just want to check on your child’s progress, you only need to call the office, and we will be happy to schedule an appointment for you. We schedule formal conferences two times a year with available teachers. We will send that information (dates and times) home with students prior to conferencing.
