PSB Invites Feedback on Report Card Review

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you know, the report card/learning report is one of many ways that teachers share information about each student’s achievement.

It’s been five years since the reports were updated. The Public Schools Branch and Department of Education are in the process of updating the report card for kindergarten through grade nine.

Changes will take effect for the 2020-2021 school year.

The survey will be available online until June 11, 2019 for parents and guardians. It is brief and will take about 5 minutes to complete.  Here is the link:

Google translate might be helpful for parents of our English as Additional Language (EAL) students.

If you have questions, please contact your school principal.

On behalf of the Committee, thank-you for your time and input.

Luanne Inman
Chair, PSB Report Card Committee
