New Report Cards

No Letter Grades for Report Cards

Last year, a committee comprised of Abbotsford teaches, principals, and senior management worked together to create a new report card format that does not include letter grades for elementary schools. 

The new reporting format is designed to show the progress and growth that students have demonstrated over the course of the school year in a way that is aligned with the new BC Curriculum.  The report card will use the performance scale (not yet meeting, minimally meeting, fully meeting, exceeding) to show you your child’s progress in each curricular competency, rather than in the subject as a whole.  The report card will continue to give overall comments about the term and will give suggestions on ways you can support your child’s learning. The combination of results in curricular competencies and overall comments will better allow you to see where your child needs support and where he or she is doing well.

Parent information sessions about the new report cards will be held on:

October 5, 2017 @ Eugene Reimer Middle School (6:00pm – 7:00pm)

October 19, 2017 @ Abby Senior Multi-Purpose Room (6:00pm – 7:00pm) 

Please see the letter below for more details.
