The province is reminding parents across the province that the deadline to provide input to develop improved plain language report cards is Monday, Sept. 30.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is making changes to report cards to help ensure parents are full partners in their children’s education.
“Families need to have a good understanding of where their child is in their learning and how they can do better,” said Carole Olsen, deputy minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. “We want as many parents as possible to assist us in creating clear, accessible and informative report cards.”
To date, the department has received 108 responses to the Report Card Review. Feedback includes ideas around enhancing the clarity and content of teacher comments, grading students, and communication with parents.
Parents and teachers can send ideas, suggestions and feedback to ReportCard@gov.ns.ca or by mail:
