Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Sunday update.

GRADES FOR TERM 2
Term 2 ended on Friday, January 22, 2021. Grades are available on PowerSchool. It is very important that students keep with their assignments and for our families to be in communication with our teachers during this time. Even though the school is closed, teaching and learning is still at the heart of our work. If you have any concerns about your child’s grades, please contact your student’s teachers via email. Any other concerns may be directed to our Head Counselor I, Mrs. Sanchez at jsanchez8@sandi.net.

TERM 2 HONOR ROLL CRITERIA
To qualify for Honor Roll, a student must have a 3.33 grade point average or above, with no D’s or F’s and no N’s or U’s. We know our Eagle Scholars can do this! A big thank you goes out to our families who encourage our scholars to do their best.

SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARD (SARC)
Public schools throughout California are required to provide information about themselves to the community in the form of an annual School Accountability Report Card (SARC). These report cards provide a variety of data to allow the public to evaluate and compare schools in several important areas:

    demographic information
    school safety and climate for learning
    academic data
    class size
    teacher and staff information
    professional development
    fiscal and expenditure data

The SARC, which follows the state's guidelines and document template, are issued each Spring and focus on the previous academic year. A Link to our SARC is attached in this communication.
