Parent/Caregiver and Student Information Sessions – Consent and Gender-based Violence
The Ministry of Education and Child Care and school districts work with Safer Schools Together on a variety of training topics as part of the ERASE strategy (https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/erase). New sessions are available on the topic of Consent and Gender-based Violence for parents of students in grades 5-12. You can find information about upcoming online sessions starting on page two of the linked pdf http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/erase/documents/erase-training-schedule.pdf
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. More information at https://www.prn.bc.ca/register-for-school/
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
You can also provide feedback to SD60 on the framework components that will help us implement the changes for the upcoming school year through this survey at https://forms.office.com/r/bXcV9bpCiL . This feedback form closes soon.
