Welcome to CES
At Cardston Elementary School our mission is to provide learning experiences in an environment that will give each student opportunities to develop his or her potential. This environment will stimulate the desire for learning and will foster the development of self worth.
The focus of the time teachers will spend with Dr. Guskey is on standards based grading and reporting. It builds on the foundational teacher practice of skillful formative assessment in the classroom. It will give teachers an opportunity to learn together, examine existing practices, thoughtfully plan our way forward, and purposefully incorporate desired practices into our process of continual improvement. We affirm that the skill set of the classroom teacher is the factor with the greatest impact on student learning.
