January 3, 2017 Classes resume
The Ministry of Education is adapting the curriculum in B.C. schools so kids learn the skills they need to succeed. This means they also need to develop a new reporting approach. Currently, the progress of your child is reported in many different ways (report cards, parent-teacher meetings etc.).
Until February 28, 2017, parents can submit your thoughts on reporting online at engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress.
Community meetings will be held in across the province over the coming months so parents can ask questions and share input. Check the website for times and locations. The ultimate goal is to develop a student reporting process that gives families a deeper understanding of their child’s progress at school.
The Ministry will gather feedback and share their plan next June.
For more details on the new curriculum, please visit http://www.curriculum.gov.bc. ca.
Coming up in February!
