The presentation about reporting and assessment scheduled for Jan. 15 has been postponed. This information will be presented to parents at a later date. A presentation on this topic will be made at a public meeting of the Board of Trustees in February. Anyone who is interested may attend this meeting.
The CBE remains committed to working collaboratively with employees, parents and students on changes to reporting and assessment. Each school community is unique and is moving forward in making changes in the way that best meets their needs. Schools are continuing to have conversations with their parents, students, teachers and staff about changes to reporting practices. That input will then help guide the decisions that are made regarding a common report card for all students in kindergarten to Grade 9. The best way for parents to share their thoughts and opinions about reporting and assessment is to contact their school.
The direction set out by Alberta Education in the Inspiring Education Steering Committee Report is guiding the changes the CBE is making to reporting and assessment practices. The Jan. 15 CAPSC meeting will go ahead as scheduled, now with the Inspiring Education report as the focus of discussion.
