New District K-6 Report Card (Draft for 2015-16) – Seeking Feedback

As you are aware, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District has developed a new report card for students in the Kindergarten to Grade 6 system.
After two reporting terms the District is interested in the feedback of parents/guardians about this report card and is requesting your comments.

Please take a few moments to answer the brief feedback form available online, which will help the District as it moves forward with the implementation of the new report card.
Our goal is the creation of a report card that, while accurately reflecting the curriculum, will clearly communicate student progress and achievement.

You can find the “feedback form” at the District Website [ ] or by using the following link

This survey should only take a few minutes of you time.

Please be assured that all information collected is anonymous and confidentiality will be maintained.

Feedback is being collected up to and including Friday, May 6, 2016

Thank you in advance for your valuable contribution to this process.
