Q - What is a progress report?

- The purpose of a progress report is for teachers to be able to communicate with parents when a student may be struggling in class whether it is a lower than average grade or below satisfactory work habits or citizenship.  The purpose of this reporting is to describe students’ progress in meeting the district’s learning and  behavioural expectations for each marking period.  The progress report is intended to inform parents about their child’s learning successes and to give guidance for improvement efforts when needed.Progress reports are sent at the midpoint of each quarter and  do not go on the student's permanent record (transcript).
