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.

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
