New Learning Behaviors

Fri, 09/06/2019 - 3:16pm

Beginning this school year, you will see changes in the Learning Behaviors section of the HCPSS report card. These changes are in alignment with the updated Elementary Grading and Reporting Policy.  Please use this link to learn more about Policy 8010 https://www.hcpss.org/policies/8000/8010-grading-reporting-pre-kindergarten-grade-five/.

Learning Behaviors are learned actions that enable students to access learning and interact with others productively in the community. These behaviors are developed in and outside of school. Additionally, Learning Behaviors help with understanding and managing emotions, establishing and maintaining positive relationships, and making responsible decisions that are essential life skills. The learning behaviors also complement the curriculum content taught in the elementary grades and are a natural part of learning about oneself while interacting with others.  These behaviors were drafted and revised several times based on feedback from teachers, administrators, curriculum staff, and parent advisory committees.
