Parents are being asked for their opinions on reporting student progress until February 28, 2017. This will help shape what information parents and guardians receive and how they receive it. Please see the attached Letter from Minister Bernier.
You can learn more about the engagement at engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress .
Additionally, in the coming weeks and months, community meetings and focus groups will take place in many communities around the province, providing in-person opportunities for families and community members to share their thoughts on student reporting. Ministry of Education staff are currently working with host school districts to set up the 10 community meetings and will keep you informed of their dates and locations as they are finalized. A community meeting in Dawson Creek is being scheduled for the week of Novemebr 21 – 25. The exact date, time and location will be posted very soon.
All feedback from this important public engagement process will be considered while a provincial student reporting approach is finalized. A summary report on what was heard from parents during the engagement will be produced and posted publicly online in June 2017.
