Manitoba Education Parent Friendly Report Card
Manitoba Education has introduced a provincial report card mandated for school division use beginning in the 2013/2014 school year. The report card has been developed based on feedback from a field trial and through extensive consultations, in order to meet the goal of providing clear, consistent information for parents based on a coherent framework for assessment, grading, and reporting. The report card and the supporting framework on which it is based will help to enhance the quality of education in Manitoba and to build strong partnerships amongst students, teachers, and parents.
This document provides guidelines and policy primarily for educators, but also for others, with respect to its use. It may also be of interest to parents.
