Citizenship Rubric

Goal Is To Improve Citizenship/Character Of Students

A citizenship program has now been implemented at Freeman Schools.  In grades 7-12, students will be evaluated by each teacher based on the rubric below.  All students will begin at (S) Satisfactory, but may be moved to another level due to events which may occur.  Students can only be moved by conferencing with the teacher, and with parent notification.  

The goal is to improve the citizenship and character of our students.  The information will be measurable, so data will provide district officials with information regarding growth in this area.

If you should have questions about how this will work, please contact the HS office.  The document is posted here so that you will understand each level of the rubric. You can also Click here to view the citizenship rubric in a printable format.
