The following two projects have been accepted as one project.
A Collaborative Multiple Site Initiative (K-8): To develop and implement best practices in communicating student learning. Instead of report cards three times a year, pilot schools will explore various practices, including student-led conferences, student portfolios, student and peer assessments, co-created criteria and competency-based reporting.
Changing Reporting Regulations to Support Student Learning: To work towards eliminating letter grades from the Transition Program (REAL 9 and Planning 10); instead have students focus on the experiences and reflective process. Traditional grades in Robotics 10-12 will also be replaced with qualitative summaries of student progress from both teacher and student via electronic portfolios.
