Proposed 3-Year Calendar
The Board of Trustees of School District No. 60 would like to give an opportunity to provide input on this proposed three-year school calendar ( https://www.prn.bc.ca/proposed-3-year-calendar/ ). Written submissions should be mailed to our District Administration Office (10112-105 Avenue, Fort St John, BC, V1J 4S4) or emailed to public@prn.bc.ca on or before March 6, 2023.

Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten registration is in full swing. Some schools have seen a significant number of early registrations. We encourage all parents of children who will be 5 years old by December 31, 2023 to register now for kindergarten. Early registration saves a seat in your home school and helps us to determine staffing and resourcing of schools.

Reporting Policy Framework – Changes for 2023-2024
The framework linked below provides an overview of the upcoming changes to the K-12 Student Reporting Policy. This policy is set to be implemented for the 2023-2024 school year. This framework aligns student reporting with the redesigned curriculum and provincial assessment system. The work is the result consultation and engagement with rightsholders, education partners, teachers, parents, caregivers, students, and the public over the past several years.

The Ministry of Education and Child Care will be working with a team of teachers and administrators to collaboratively construct resources for educators, parents, caregivers, and students. You can see what is changing and what is staying the same at
