Assessment and Reporting

Reporting and Grading
Formal report cards to parents are issued four times a year (generally in November, February, April and June). The report card indicates an achievement grade, a work habit mark, attendance, and generally a teacher comment for each course in which the student is enrolled.

Students receive a Work Habits Comment for each subject on every report card.  Unless a teacher indicates otherwise, the comment of Good, Satisfactory, or Needs Improvement is based upon a rubric developed by the staff.

Honour Roll
For grades 8 - 10, the requirement to get on the Honour Roll is 80% or better on 4 or more courses with no I’s or failing grades. For grades 11 and 12, the Honour Roll requirement is 80% or better on 3 or more courses with no I’s or failing grades.

G Award
Students receive a Work Habits Comment for each course on every report card.  Unless a teacher indicates otherwise, the comment of Good, Satisfactory, or Needs Improvement, is based upon a rubric developed by the staff.  Grade 8 – 10 students receiving a minimum of 4 G’s on their reported courses (and no N’s) receive a G Award each reporting period. Grade 11 and 12 students with a minimum of 3 G’s (and no N’s) receive a G Award each reporting period.

Definition of “A Student in Good Standing”
Any student who is in regular attendance in all courses, is passing all subjects, is eligible to complete the BC Ministry of Education Graduation Requirements, and has not committed any serious breaches of the School’s Code of Conduct.

A student must be in Good Standing to participate in extra-curricular activities, play on a school-sponsored team, and attend the Graduation Banquet or Commencement Ceremony.  Upon the request of a staff member presenting new information on behalf of a student declared Not in Good Standing, the administration may review that student’s status and may restore him or her to Good Standing.

Passports to Education
Students in grades 10-12 are eligible to receive financial awards based upon their school marks.  Students in the top 30% of their grade (based on the top five marks in provincially-recognized courses) receive a stamp in their Passport (kept in the school office).  These stamps can be redeemed when the student graduates and enrolls in post-secondary education.  The awards increase in value as follows:

Grade 10:  $250                 Grade 11:  $250                 Grade 12:  $500
