Reporting on Student Learning in the Classroom

What is this engagement about?

Students and parents/caregivers need to receive regular, clear communication about student learning throughout the school year. To help ensure this information is provided consistently from Kindergarten through to Grade 12, the B.C. The Ministry of Education is replacing three different policies with one, unified K-12 Student Reporting Policy. This new policy is aligned with the curriculum that was introduced beginning in 2016 and will ensure parents receive information about:

  • student progress in each subject area the student is currently studying,
  • areas of significant student growth and opportunities for further development,
  • student attendance.

The policy will also give students a voice in their learning by requiring student self-assessment and goal setting to be included in reports home.

In consultation with a diverse range of partners in the education sector, the Ministry of Education have developed a proposed draft of this new policy. The Ministry would now like to hear from teachers, parents, students and school administrators to gather feedback and perspectives on this proposed change. 

Prior to providing your feedback, please review:

How can my contribution make a difference?

This public feedback period will run from Sept. 27th to Nov. 5th 2021. Respondents will have an opportunity to rate components of the policy and provide written comments and suggestions. In November 2021, a What We Heard Report summarizing this feedback will be released. The Ministry of Education will then release an updated and final policy in January 2022. Once approved, this final policy is projected to come into effect for the 2022/2023 school year.
