Student Grades, Report Cards and Progress Points

Practice and feedback are an important part of learning.  In order to support students and teachers to keep assignments and tests up to date, there will be two progress points in the semester (which take the place of the mid-semester report card).  Report cards will still be done at the end of each term.

Parents and guardians can support students by checking Powerschool and ensuring all work is completed before the Progress Point deadline.

Progress Point 1

     October 1--all assignments, tests and projects are due.  After this date, late work can no longer be accepted. Teachers may negotiate how to reassess learning at a later date but previous assessments cannot be used.  This is to prevent students handing in work from early in the semester in the last weeks of the term because there is little learning taking place when this happens. 

     October 9--grades in Powerschool will be up to date

     October 10-- Parent Teacher Interviews from 5:00-7:30--each teacher will have a sign-up sheet outside their classroom so parents/guardians can book 10 minutes appointment slots starting at 5:00

 

Progress Point 2

     November 2--all assignments, tests and projects due

     November 9--all grades in Powerschool will be up to date

     November 14--Parent Teacher Interviews from 5:00-7:30

 

Term End Report Card

     January 18--diploma marks due

     January 22--all marks due

Report Cards distributed in first week of February
