For the first time in a long time the school year ended and your child did not come home with a Provincial Report card. There was no descriptive feedback discussing their strengths and areas of improvement and there were no learning skills that explained how your child learns and performs best at school.
This lack of information can leave many wondering - and we are certain many parents like yourself have numerous questions. Questions such as: What can be said about my child’s achievements this year? How did they grow academically? Did they improve their social skills? Grow their emotional intelligence? Become productive community members in the classroom and beyond? What factors indicate these growths and developments? What are the next steps my child needs to be taking to help narrow the achievement gap? How can I help them do this?
As parents we are sometimes in the dark when it comes to navigating the classroom, curriculum and learning expectations. We are not familiar with important terms that impact daily assessment and evaluation such as Overall and Specific expectations, Success Criteria and Summative evaluations. Parents rely on the provincial report card to explain the learning that takes place, so they can best understand how their child learns and what their areas of strength and improvement are.
What we do know as parents is that education jargon is often spoken without translation, decisions about your child's academic program and environment are sometimes made without your knowledge and that all of the information you need to make informed decisions regarding your child's academic, social and emotional welfare is not always shared and made accessible.
