DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – On Tuesday, November 22, parents will be given a chance to share thoughts on student progress reporting. This also includes report cards.

The meeting is part of a three-year implementation of B.C.’s new curriculum.

Ministry staff and school district officials are scheduled be at Dawson Creek Secondary school’s central campus (10701- 10 St., Dawson Creek).

The meeting in Dawson Creek is the 3rd of 11 meetings. The government wants to hear directly from parents on how they want to be updated on their children’s progress in school.

A brainstorming workshop will take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and parents will have the opportunity to participate in small group sessions to talk about their thoughts.

The meeting is primarily for Kindergarten to Grade 9, but they welcome anyone who would like to attend to do so.

Education Minister Mike Bernier says this is a big opportunity for parents to voice what they would like to see.

“Parents from the Peace can be part of the conversation happening around how teachers will report on student progress. It’s critical parents are able to share their thoughts and ideas so they can be confident they are getting the information they need. I encourage everyone to drop by the session or engage online and help shape the future of student reporting in B.C.”
