Daily Progress Report (DPR)

Daily Progress Report (DPR) for Students
(Link to actual DPR Form is below)
Your child's counselor can call your child in and give him/her a stack of Daily Progress Reports (DPR's), or you can print them from the link below.  There are also extra copies in the office for students to take before school, during lunch or after school.  We also recommend for parents to communicate with teachers that their student will be completing the DPR's so that the teachers can help remind and encourage the students to do so.  It is your child's responsibility to ask each teacher he/she sees, everyday, to fill it out and sign it. When he/she gets home, please be consistent in asking to see the DPR, and providing rewards and consequences, as appropriate.
Recommended DPR Guidelines for Parents:

All DPR information should be filled out and signed by the teacher for each class attended that day, no excuses!
  • A partially filled out DPR is unacceptable.
  • “I forgot” or “The teacher/sub wouldn’t/didn’t sign it” are not acceptable excuses.

How do I rate the teacher's answers?

  • The comments do not all need to be perfect “Yes’s,” but they need to be mostly “Yes’s” for the report to be acceptable.
How do I reward my child based on their DPR each day?
  • If the report is deemed acceptable, then your child has chosen to earn ALL of his/her privileges that day, after he/she completes his/her homework.
  • Sit down with your child and discuss what his/her “privileges” will consist of… e.g. cell phone usage, iPod, stereo, TV, computer, iPad, Nintendo/Play Station, home phone, extra curricular activities, playing with friends, riding a bike, etc. These should be things that your child values and finds rewarding.
  • You may also choose to include allowance as one of his/her “privileges,” by dividing whatever allowance he/she gets (e.g. $5 per week?) up into 5 parts ($1 per day) which he/she either earns or fails to earn, depending upon what the DPR says.
How do I assign consequences to my child based on their DPR each day?
  • If the report is deemed unacceptable, then your child has chosen to forgo ALL of his/her privileges for that day.  That may mean that his/her evening activities would only be: eating dinner, doing homework, and going to bed.
Does my child start with a clean slate the next day?
  • The next day is a new day, with a new opportunity to earn his/her privileges back (or lose them), but remember it’s his/her choice!
