Report Cards

Report cards assess, evaluate, and report on student progress. The purpose of assessment and evaluation is to improve student learning. There are two types of report cards: mid-term progress reports and provincial report cards in addition to a myriad of evaluation strategies that our classroom teachers use cumulatively to inform the student's final evaluation.

Reporting Periods

  • Our school year has four reporting periods (two each semester) for RCI and a progress report and two report cards for RCIS.
  • The mid-term report cards are typically sent out in the fall (late October/November) for the first semester and in March/April for the second semester for RCI.  A progress report is handed out in November and an interim report card in February for RCIS.
  • Final provincial report cards are issued after exams in mid February and early July for RCI and June for RCIS.

Levels of Achievement

Grades are given in a percentage that correlates with the level of achievement. Please refer to the table below for an explanation of each level:
