Please keep in mind that the printing default setting for the new elementary progress report is set for legal size paper. School would need to have enough legal size paper on hand to manage the demand of printing these documents.
Both documents can be printed on letter size paper.  For schools that decide to print on letter size, please keep in mind the the documents will be reduced to fit on a smaller paper size.  This means the font on progress reports and teacher verification rosters printed on letter size paper will be smaller than intended.

The Elementary Instruction Department has developed a new progress report e-learning course in three modules, available on MyPLN. This e-learning course was created in preparation for the activation of the new Elementary CA Content Standards Progress Report in MiSiS for the 2017-2018 school year. The course is available now for viewing using your Single Sign On (SSO) in MyPLN, course name: Unfolding the New Elementary Progress Report 
Unfolding the New Elementary Progress Report, Module 3 is experiencing technical difficulties.  
We will update when the module is available for viewing. Click for Module 3 ppt and facilitator guide.

The educational course in MyPLN for teachers is in three chapters of content that may be adapted for compacting or extended for additional learning based on school need. Each chapter is designed to be 45 minutes, but each one may be completed more rapidly or extended depending on the needs of your employees. 
1) History and Purpose 
2) Standards-based Marking Practices, and 
3) MiSiS Screens and Job Aids. 

*The implementation of the new Elementary California Content Standards Progress Report represents a major change in our progress reporting for students, thus additional learning for teachers, parents, and administrators is necessary to support them in managing this transition. The online e-learning course may be completed in MyPLN as a group or independently. Schools are advised to complete the course prior to October 15, 2017.  The new 2017-2018 Banked Time PD Priorities memorandum contains a section dedicated to the progress report PD course with any new requirements for completion in the 2017-2018 school year.

Warning Notices:

  • Click sample warning notice for an example of a grade K-5 and 6 notice that schools can modify and/or use as a template.
  • Warning Notice MiSiS Job Aid
  • TK:
    The purpose of the TK progress report is to demonstrate development along a learning continuum. TK is a two-year program. TK students are expected to meet kindergarten standards at the end of their second year, which is at the end of their kindergarten year. Specific concerns should always be discussed between the parents and teacher. In a developmentally appropriate TK environment, unsatisfactory notices would be inappropriate.  

Kindergarten Continuance:

If the school and parent of a kindergarten student feels that the student would benefit from a second year in kindergarten, the student may be enrolled in kindergarten for a second year so long as they were not enrolled in TK or ETK in the prior school year. Please follow the guidelines as set in REF-6756.1.
