FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – School District 60 announced Wednesday that it is looking for feedback on its draft K-12 Student Reporting Policy.

The reporting policy creates a framework for how the district communicates student learning. The document establishes basic expectations on the frequency of communication, as well as how, and what is communicated as it relates to student progress.

According to a release on the B.C. government website, the Ministry of Education is “replacing three different policies with one unified K-12 Student Reporting Policy.”

“Consistent, timely and meaningful student reporting across British Columbia’s K-12 school system supports student learning by ensuring parents/caregivers and students are informed about student progress,” reads the draft policy statement.

The new policy aligns with the curriculum that was introduced in 2016, ensuring parents get information about their student’s progress in each subject area, areas of significant student growth and opportunities for further development, and student attendance.

The policy will also give students a chance to take ownership of their learning by requiring student self-assessment and goal setting to be included in reports.

The draft document is available for review on the B.C. government website.

The public feedback engagement period opened on September 27th and it will close on November 5th.
