Online Report Card Survey Launched

Education and Early Childhood Development

March 21, 2014 11:12 AM

A committee aimed at ensuring that report cards are meeting the needs of students and their families wants to hear from parents, students, principals and teachers. 

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development wants input on what is working well and areas for improvement with provincial report cards.

The committee, which includes students, parents, teachers, principals, and school board staff, launched a survey today, March 21, at . 

"It is important that parents, guardians and students are getting constructive feedback that helps them know where a student is in their learning and how they can do better," said Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey.

"I want report cards that are clear, helpful and accessible for all parents and students and that is why we are looking at how report cards are structured, and their content." 

The committee will use the survey to identify what is working and what can be improved in order to provide clear information to students and families, and to support teachers in maximizing the learning and achievement of all students. 

The committee is expected to report to the minister on April 30.

"We need to ensure that report cards are an important and valuable tool in the overall learning process that will help our children succeed," said Ms. Casey.

Suggestions and feedback will be accepted until April 11.
