Part of my schedule as a school counselor is attending monthly Elementary School Counselor meetings. This morning, we had our first meeting, and discussed, among other things, changes to the report card for this year. You may be used to the “Character Development” section of the report card from previous years. However, since the district has now been utilizing the Second Step curriculum for a few years now, it seemed to make sense that it was represented on the report card. Thus, this year you will see new criteria represented on the report card which matches the skills taught in Second Step!
