High school reports soon to be released

CHSS students will soon be receiving their report cards in the mail, however they won't be as per usual.

With the high school’s first semester under job action now complete, parents or guardians will soon be receiving their children’s report cards in the mail. However this time report cards will be lacking in certain aspects.

Secondary students who are not in grade twelve will receive report cards with simply their name, mailing information and attendance record included. Students in grade twelve will be granted letter marks, but not much else.

“Parents will only see letter grades, there will be no comments, or effort marks.” Explained Superintendent of School District 52, Lynn Hauptman.

The only exception to this would be if an administrator was teaching a course at the high school, something Hauptman said did not happen this term.

This all comes after earlier in 2011, when the Labour Relations Boards decided upon a variety of administrative duties and interactions with Administrative Officers that teachers were not required to perform under phase one of their job action, one of which being that teachers were not required to prepare or distribute report cards.

Report cards for high school students will be sent out sometime this week through the mail.
