During the past year, Gulf Islands School District was selected by BC’s Innovation Partnership to participate in a K-12 innovation project that focuses on “Communicating Student Learning” Teachers in the district have participated in workshops to explore various practices for communicating student learning to students and parents.

Our purpose is to refine our assessment and reporting practices to best support student learning and to provide parents with good information about their child’s progress. During this first year many teachers in K-8 classrooms are enhancing student-led conferences, student portfolios, student and peer assessments, and learning stories. At the secondary level, one of the ways the Robotics 10-12 class is supporting learning is with descriptive summaries of student progress from both teacher and student via electronic portfolios.

As we move forward with planning for the coming school year, we want you to share your experiences as a learner, as a parent, and as a teacher. You’re invited to complete the Parent and Community Survey on Communicating Student Learning.

A survey has been prepared for teachers of Gulf Islands School District 64.

Student surveys are also being administered in classrooms.

Your feedback is important.

The surveys will be open until the end of day on May 9, 2016.

We look forward to hearing from you.
