The Ministry of Education has released a draft form of a new K–12 Student Reporting Policy which includes significant changes to the current reporting order. Teachers, parents, and students have from now until November 5, 2021, to provide written comments and feedback. An updated policy is expected to be released in January 2022, to be implemented in the 2022–23 school year.
Under this new policy, student progress for Grades K–9 would be communicated using descriptive feedback and the Provincial Proficiency Scale. For students in Grades 10–12, progress would be communicated using descriptive feedback, letter grades and percentages. The four-point Provincial Proficiency Scale may also be used in Grades 10–12.
The proposed policy would require a minimum of five reporting events each school year: four learning updates throughout the school year (two of which must be written reports) and one written summary of learning at the end of the school year.
It is important we share our feedback with the Ministry of Education over the next six weeks to ensure our perspectives and concerns are heard.
An updated policy is expected to be released in January 2022, to be implemented in the 2022–23 school year.
