Progress Reports

Progress Reports went home on March 20. See below for some information on the new format:

Regina Public Schools Grades 1 through 8 students are bringing home a new progress report in the 2012‐2013 school year. Parents or guardians are vital partners in a child's education and want clear, meaningful information about how their child is doing at school. The new Progress Report:

  • Encourages ongoing communication between you and your child's teacher;
  • Continues to report on all academic subjects;
  • Includes a more detailed Outcome Progress Report that specifically reports literacy and numeracy outcomes; and
  • Continues to use the Personal/Social Growth Rubric to demonstrate how well your child is developing the citizenship and work habits essential for success.

Why the change?

  • New outcomes based provincial curricula
  • Educational research
  • Desire for greater clarity and consistency regarding school grading practices
  • Criteria for outcomes thus creating meaning for students and parents
  • Separates student achievement from behavior and effort
  • Helps inform teacher instruction
  • Teaches students what quality looks like

What are outcomes and indicators?

  • Outcomes: the important understandings and abilities to be developed in each subject area
  • Indicators: a breakdown of what students need to know and/or be able to do to achieve an outcome
