I writing in response to several questions that I have received from parents regarding report cards .
Teachers are currently writing reports cards. They will be mailed home during the week of June 22.
Report Cards comments and grades are primarily based on the academic period from Feb 1st to March 13th. Teachers may use the work completed during remote learning to support student grades and comments where it is to the benefit of the student. Learning during school closure will not negatively impact a student’s grade or comments.
If the teacher is using work completed during the school closure as part of their evaluation the following statement may appear in the subject area comment box.
“The grade/mark for [enter student name] is based on demonstrated learning prior to the school closure period, as well as evidence of progress gathered during the school closure period.”
You will see that some subjects and/or strands will have an “I” provided in the grade box. An “I” indicates that the teacher feels there was not sufficient evidence to determine a letter grade or percentage mark. In the case of an “I” being given, the following statement will appear on the report card in the corresponding subject comment area.
“Due to the school closure period, there is insufficient information to determine a grade/mark.”
If a student did not engage in learning during the school closure the following comment may appear in the corresponding subject comment box.
“The grade/mark for [enter student name] is based on demonstrated learning prior to the school closure period.”
The most important thing to know is that learning that took place during the school closure will not negatively impact a students grade or comment.
