New Ministry K-12 Reporting Policy

Over the last few years our district has been moving over the new Kindergarten to Grade 12 Report Policy, under the direction of the Ministry of Education and Child Care. Parents and students will have seen this as many report cards have shifted to using a new proficiency scale for students in kindergarten to grade 9.

Please note, students in grades 10 to 12 will continue to use letter grades and percentages.

This new policy includes a greater emphasis on student self-assessment of the Core Competencies and personal goal setting for student success.

The Ministry has created a website portal to help support parents in understanding the new assessment goals and scale, including providing detailed information in a number of languages.

Below we have shared the shortened brochure, but more information, a detailed video guide, and answers to all your questions are available here: https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/reporting/resources-for-parents-and-caregivers
