As part of updating and modernizing our education system, the Ministry of Education invited input from parents to help shape what information they receive and how they receive it, including report cards.
This engagement gathered feedback to help guide the development of the reporting approach for students in kindergarten to Grade 9, with the goal of ensuring that parents are well informed about their children, and their children’s progress, as B.C.’s curriculum is enhanced.
