Reporting your child's progress

It is very important for all parents to remain informed about their child's progress in all areas. In addition to many other teacher-initiated means of communication, progress reports and report cards will be sent home in the course of the year. These are very important documents and all parents are invited to keep the following dates in mind.

The progress report is an update on your child's achievement in each subject. It provides information on each of the assignments, exams, etc. If an assignment is not completed, the comment "incomplete" will appear on the progress report and the parents will be informed. Within reasonable time limits, students are always allowed to complete missing assignments to improve their mark. At the time of the report card, incomplete assignments will be accounted as zero.

The progress report is available to be seen online through PowerSchool. Parents can contact the office to obtain a user ID and a password.

The report card is a summary of your child's progress. It indicates the final percentage obtained in each subject. The report card is a very important document. It is kept in your child's cumulative file and it is used to determine your child's program placement, as well as high school placement. In each of the core subjects, the report card is broken down in the following categories to determine the final mark in each subject:

Term I 40%
Term II 40%
Final Exams 20%
