Reporting on Student Progress
Everyday children are in school, their teachers monitor their progress. They watch for participation in the classroom, interaction with others, look over classwork and homework, and grade assignments and tests.
In Chilliwack School District, teachers abide by Ministry of Education regulations requiring a minimum of five reports per year on each students progress. Three or four of these reports (depending on the school) come home via a written report card.
The report card summarizes the achievements and/or work habits of your child. In parent-student-teacher conferences, the teacher will discuss those results with you, along with other observations of your child's progress. You'll also have the chance to review some of the work your child is doing at school.
In addition to the report card, your child's teacher may choose to communicate with you in a variety of ways: through a telephone call, a note or a meeting.
Meet the teacher nights, parent- teacher interviews and student-led or student-involved conferences are excellent ways to get to know your child's teacher(s).
