Download information as a Word Document

As you know, a NEW standards-based elementary report card (called the Learner Profile), has been implemented this year in Golden Hills School Division. Parents were surveyed in the fall regarding their perceptions of this new reporting tool. Based on the feedback from parents, we have made some changes to the report card for the upcoming school year. This document will summarize and address the common parent concerns. We do appreciate parent feedback and hope that these revisions and further implementation of this new Learner Profile (including the paper copy and parent portal), will continue to improve our communication with you about your child.
