The Ministry of Education is redesigning curriculum and assessment to fit with the modern education system needed for today's world. Redesigned curriculum for Grades K-9 is being implemented in the 2016-17 school year.

New way of reporting for the redesigned curriculum Grades K-9

There is a redesigned curriculum for Grades K-9 beginning this school year and engagement with parents about how to report student progress is also happening.

The district’s goal is to design a way of reporting that will fully involve students, parents and teachers and the new provincial curriculum is designed to capture the passions and interests of students to better meet their personalized needs. There are better communication tools now to keep parents informed and connected to their child’s learning.

The Ministry of Education is gathering input until February 28, 2017.  There will also be school-based and district-wide parent information sessions during the 2016-17 school year.  Check with your child’s school for updates.

Feedback - Communicating Student Learning

The district is looking for feedback for the District Reporting Process.  Deadline for feedback is Monday, April 3, 2017.
