Parents in the Prince George area can mark Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017, on their calendars to share their thoughts on student progress reporting, including report cards.
The Ministry of Education is hosting an upcoming open house to receive parent feedback on how they want to hear about how their child is doing in school. It’s part of the three-year implementation of B.C.’s new curriculum, which is designed to get students ready to succeed in the changing world.
Ministry staff and school district officials will be at Prince George Secondary school (2901 Griffiths Ave., Prince George) for a conversation about the future of student progress reporting in kindergarten-to-Grade 9 classrooms.
This is the final community meeting to be held as part of the B.C. government’s province-wide engagement to hear directly from parents on how they want to be informed about their child’s progress.
Parents can drop in to the casual open house between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to share their ideas on how to make student reporting better and enjoy refreshments. Parents and interested community members also can learn more about B.C.’s new curriculum.
A brainstorming workshop will take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., giving parents the opportunity to participate in small group sessions, discussing their thoughts in greater detail.
While this public meeting will primarily be of interest to parents of K-to-9 students, all British Columbians and community groups are welcome to attend.
Parents unable to attend the meeting can learn about the process and share their thoughts online until Feb. 28, 2017, by visiting: http://engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress
