PURPOSE

The Board believes that student progress must be regularly and formally reported to parents/guardians during the year. Two methods of reporting have been approved by the Board: student report cards and parent-teacher interviews. It is further recognized that in certain circumstances more frequent communications are needed. In these cases schools should communicate with parents as the need arises rather than wait for formal reporting periods.
