Mission & Vision

    We are Ella C Pittman Elementary School. We have been servicing students from this location on 13th Street since 1976. We service approximately 600 students in grades Pre-K through 5 and have about 75 staff members.

    This year we will be conducting our "Back to School" orientations virtually to provide a safe method for families and students to learn more about our school policies and procedures and obtain any information needed prior to coming to school! This page has been developed to walk you through the orientation process virtually. It is recommended to follow the steps below to ensure you do not miss anything important! An email/text with Google Meet links will be provided for our Virtual "Back to School Night" once the date is finalized.

    Step 6: Grading Policy

    The school year is divided into 4 - 9 week terms.  Number of test grades and participation grades varies by grade level and subject.  Please reach out to your child's teacher for more specific information on grading.



    The school district provides a means to monitor your student’s grades and attendance electronically via the JCAMPUS Student Progress Center.  The information regarding parent/guardian will be provided to students and families at the beginning of the school year.


    A report card will be issued to your child every nine (9) weeks term.  Parents/guardians must sign the report card envelope but may keep the report card document itself. Report card envelopes are expected to be returned the day after they are issued.  The key on the report card will indicate the progress made by your student.


    An interim report will be issued at the midway point of the marking period.  These reports will indicate the current academic progress for your student.  Please note if your student is having academic or behavior issues at this point.
