We did get some report card information at our meeting. I’ve attached the letter that should be going to your parents as well.
Parents: If you didn’t get this letter yet, ask your child to log into their Google Classroom and look for the original version of this post where I’ve attached the letter
A few highlights that are going to be relevant to you…
Grades will be determined based on their learning from the beginning of Term 2, February 3 to March 13, 2020. So, as I’ve already mentioned, your grades will not have gone down based on our time when we’ve been working from home. For some of you, who have been active and engaged, you may find that your grades have gone up a little bit.
The mark “I”:
In several cases you will have gotten the mark “I” instead of a number grade. This is for two main reasons. If we started a unit AFTER the March Break, you will get an I. I know many of you worked hard, and where that is the case, I have tried to include that information in the comment section of the report card. In other cases, such as health, where we only had a couple of lessons (due to job action, weather, and the school closure), I didn’t feel I had enough information to give you a valid mark.
It’s important to know that “I” doesn’t mean you didn’t do a good job or understand the material that we covered. It just means that there is insufficient evidence for me to put a grade in.
Report Card Delivery:
You will be getting an ELECTRONIC COPY of your report card. The details haven’t been shared with me yet about HOW it will be delivered, but delivery will begin on the 23rd of June and may take a few days. All students/families should get their report cards by the 26th. You will be notified when your report is ready and how to access it.
All I have right now is what’s in the letter. If I find anything else out, I will pass it along to you as soon as possible.
