Report Card Dates

  • Dec. 19, 2017
  • June 27, 2018

Reporting Periods

A formal written report card for all students will be issued in December and June. In addition, opportunities for conversations with teachers are scheduled in September, November and March allowing parents an opportunity to share beneficial information about their child with the school.

Formal parent-student centered conferences with teachers are scheduled for November and March. If concerns or questions should arise at any time about students, parents are invited to contact the school office to set up an appointment to meet with
teachers. We encourage ongoing dialogue throughout the year; however, we ask that teacher’s privacy be respected by not contacting them at home or during class time to discuss student progress. Escalating issues of concern are best discussed in person rather than through email.

We believe that teachers are the primary leaders in the classroom and that almost all issues can and should be dealt with at that level. When all other avenues have been exhausted, teachers and parents may choose to ask the principal to meet and discuss other strategies for resolving problems or concerns. In this way, we honour the role of the educators who are the most knowledgeable about the work that is occurring in the classroom.

​Assessment and Reporting at the CBE

The report card is one component in communicating student learning. In addition to the report card, schools communicate with parents/guardians about student progress on an ongoing basis in a variety of ways. Some other ways to learn how your child is doing are informal conversations with your child and your child’s teachers, celebrations of learning, conferences, and online tools such as D2L, HomeLogic and Iris. (See our Technology Tools page for more information.)

Grading and Reporting at the CBE

We know it is important for parents/guardians to understand how their children are doing in school. Research shows that students are more successful with active parent/guardian involvement.​

The Alberta Programs of Study are changing, and like many other school divisions in the province, the CBE is redesigning assessment and reporting practices to reflect these changes. We are developing resources to help teachers, students and parents/guardians see and understand student progress and achievement. This process of redesign will continue to evolve over a number of years as we work with our schools and parents/guardians to develop a rich and varied approach to assessment across all grades and a common report card for K-9.

Assessment is not just about report cards. They are one of the ways schools communicate with parents/guardians about their child’s progress and achievement at certain times of the year. Assessment happens every day, in every classroom, throughout the school year. Assessing a student’s progress is one of the most important ways we support the continued learning of our students.

We invite you to learn more about assessment as we work together to develop assessment and reporting practices that support the continued success of our students.​​​​​ How is My Child Doing in School?​ outlines some of the ways you can learn more about your child's learning and achievement.​
