Many of your children will be bringing home their report cards this week as we get ready for the winter break.
We thought that this would provide a good opportunity for you to participate in the Ministry of Education’s Engagement Process on Student Reporting.
As many of you may be aware, this 2016-2017 school year, the Ministry of Education is gathering input from parents on how you want to hear about your child’s process at school. The Ministry is looking for input from parents to guide the development of the reporting approach for students in Kindergarten to Grade 9 so parents have a better understanding of their child’s progress.
There are two ways for parents to participate:
- By attending one of the community open houses that are happening around the province. These sessions are drop-in between 5-7 PM with a one-hour facilitated workshop from 7-8 PM. A schedule of the Community Open Houses is available at http://engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress/en/communitymeetings/
- By completing a parent feedback form either online or by printing a hard copy that can be completed and return by mail. The online survey is available at https://interceptum.com/s/en/Student_Progress
The parent feedback form will be open for response until February 28, 2017 at 4 PM. All of the input submitted will be summarized into an Engagement Summary Report, which will be available online in June 2017. The information gathered will be considered by the Ministry and the School District leaders as they develop potential models for improved reports.

Thanks in advance for your participation in this parent engagement process.
