Reporting process


We believe that feedback is most effective when it:

  • KIND –  Lifts the child up
  • HELPFUL – Clearly state areas of strength and areas yet to be developed?
  • SPECIFIC – Indicates to a parent whether their child is Emerging, Developing, Proficient, or Extending (BC Performance Standards)


Written student progress reports for students in kindergarten to grade 7 includes a performance scale and reporting comments in relation to the learning outcomes for the following subjects:

  1. Arts Education
  2. English Language Arts
  3. Mathematics
  4. Physical and Health Education,
  5. Science
  6. Social Studies
  7. Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards (SEAS)
  8. Language and Culture: Xai’Xais


K4 to grade 7 students will receive a report card three times a year (in December, March, and June). 

Reports for primary students in K4 to grade 7 include written comments about: 

  1. What the student is able to do, 
  2. Areas requiring further attention, 
  3. Ways of supporting the student in his/her learning and an overall statement of progress. 

Throughout the year, communication between school and teacher is encouraged through informal parent/teacher conversations and more formal parent/teacher conferences and/or specially-arranged meetings. 


Grade 8 to 12 students will receive a report card two times a year (in January and June). 

Formal reports for students in grades 9 to 12 use letter grades and percentages. In addition, there will be interim reporting periods for high school students. Parents will be informed of potential failure in a course during the interim reporting periods. Students must meet all graduation requirements and successfully complete a minimum of 80 credits of coursework to complete grade 12 and graduate from school.

Promotion through school grades should be continuous; retaining (or holding students back) is rare. Grade promotions or retaining a student in a grade involves team consultations between teachers, parents and school administration.

For K4 to grade 12 students, we will host one parent-teacher conference (in October) and a student-led conference (in April).
