We utilize GKIDS (Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills) as a tool for assessing our students. We are continually teaching, assessing, and reteaching the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) throughout the year. The grading procedures for kindergartners is much different than that of grades 1-12. Kindergartners are graded on whether they exceed, meet, are progressing, emerging, or do not meet the standard. By the end of the year Kindergartners are expected to meet 70% of ELA and 70% of Math Standards.
