Report Cards

Check our calendar page for exact dates when report cards are issued.

Assessment and Reporting is an ongoing process of demonstrating learning and responding to feedback.  A growth mindset opens our students to the possibilities for achievement and the opportunities to learn from mistakes and continue on a pattern of positive growth.

Feedback in PowerSchool, Student Led conferences and formal report cards comprise assessment and reporting at Rideau Park School.  Students and Parents may access feedback to student learning through the MYCBE/PowerSchool Account.  Student conferences are scheduled approximately halfway through each term and Formal Report Cards will be made available online in the MYCBE/PowerSchool Accounts at the end of January and end of June.  

Although the above information represents significant opportunities for teachers and parents to communicate, we strongly encourage on-going dialogue throughout the year. Students are encouraged to communicate with their teachers.  Please communicate with your child's teacher should there be questions.  

Mark Appeals

Final course marks will be made available to students at the end of the year. Students and parents have an opportunity to dispute the final course mark on Appeals Day. A student and parent may appeal a school-based mark by directly discussing their concern with the teacher. Should a resolution not occur following these discussions, the student and parent may then address their concerns in writing to the principal. The decision of the principal regarding school-based marks is deemed to be the final decision of the Calgary Board of Education (CBE Administrative Regulation 3018).

Addressing Educational Concerns 

If parents have a concern with respect to the academic learning or the processes involved in learning for their child(ren) they should:

First:

  1. Contact the classroom teacher to set up an appointment.
  2. Meet with the classroom teacher to discuss the concern.
  3. In consultation set up a plan of action and a date to review the success of said plan.

If parents feel they need to access support from administration they should:

  1. Contact the administration and make an appointment once they have communicated with the teacher.
  2. Meet with the administrator and teacher (if appropriate) to discuss their concern.
  3. Set up a plan of action and a date to review said plan.

​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.)

Visit the CBE website for more information and for the Parent’s Guide, Assessment and Reporting and How is My Child Doing in School?​​​​

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.​​​​​
