June 30th - Student Reporting
As you are aware, the labour dispute between the provincial government and British Columbia Teacher's Federation (BCTF) has resulted in an abrupt end to this school year. One of the many consequences of this dispute is that report cards will look significantly different.
The Labour Relations Board (LRB) has ruled that grade 10, 11, and 12 marks must be reported but there is no similar requirement for grades K - 9.
Grade 10 - 12 student marks will be entered into school systems the week of June 30 - July 4 and report cards for these students will be mailed home.
In the absence of an essential service order for K - 9, parents can expect a wide range of reports ranging from either a full report card (many of our elementary school were able to do this just prior to the strike action) to either very minimal or no information.
If you do not receive a full year end report card, please be assured that your child is progressing to the next grade unless you have been informed otherwise by the school. It is our hope to deal with outstanding report card issues when the labour dispute is settled.
Please continue to refer to our district webpage for updates. We wish you and your children the best this summer!
