Report cards ruled out for K-9 students

Students in kindergarten to Grade 9 won’t be getting report cards this year.

In a letter sent home to parents, Nanaimo school district superintendent Dave Hutchinson said strike action by B.C. teachers will not allow for the completion and distribution of report cards.

He said the assessment information needed to produce report cards is not consistently available, and the district does not have the resources available to produce report cards. Unless parents have been told otherwise, students will be assigned to the next grade.

Students in Grade 10-12 will receive an abbreviated report card with final grades and attendance, but no comments or descriptions of work habits. Hutchinson said those report cards should be available by the end of August.
