Communicating Student Learning (CSL) – Elementary Report Card Update
Thank you to all of those who participated in our communicating student learning survey last spring. The CSL committee, comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, trustees, and central office staff, continues to work to create a new elementary report card for grades 1-6 students. Based on feedback from close to 1,000 parents and 400 teachers, the new report card will provide information about student achievement in academic outcomes and learner attributes, and it will be available both digitally and in paper format. Initial trials of the report card will begin in the spring of 2015, with an intended pilot of the report card running in the 2015-2016 school year. Full implementation will take place in 2016-2017.
Grade 3 Student Learning Assessments
As you may be aware, Grade 3 students across the province are piloting the Student Learning Assessments (SLA) for the 2014-2015 school year. Elk Island Public Schools' Grade 3 students are participating in this pilot. Assessments will take place September 29-October 24, 2014.
We encourage parents of Grade 3 students to visit the Alberta Education website for more information about the SLAs and answers to some frequently asked questions.
After reviewing this information, if you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
