Reporting on Student Learning in the Classroom

What was 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 developed a proposed draft of this new policy.

In providing feedback, the following documents were provided to citizens for review:

How will my contribution make a difference?

This public feedback period was from Sept. 27th, 2021 (noon) to Nov. 5th 2021 (noon). Respondents had the opportunity to rate components of the policy and provide written comments and suggestions. A What We Heard Report summarizing this feedback will be released soon, please return to this page for updates. 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.
