School Community Update for Student Reporting & Teacher Communication

I am writing to update you on important information as our school returns to normal working conditions following the recent job action.

Elementary Progress Reports

Our teachers are currently completing the fall progress report for students in Grades 1-8.  As referenced in the Director of Education’s letter on November 3, 2015, these reports will be distributed in our school on Friday, December 11, 2015.  If your child’s teacher has concerns with your child’s progress, she/he will contact you to set up a meeting. If you have questions about your child’s progress and a meeting has not been set up, please speak with your child’s teacher. Please note that because progress is tracked differently, reports are not being completed for distribution to students in Junior or Senior Kindergarten.

Parent Teacher Interviews

These meetings will be initiated by your child’s teacher where there are concerns regarding student progress and may occur on the evening of Thursday, November 26, 2015 or during the day on Friday, November 27, 2015. Teachers remain committed to ongoing communication with parents regarding student progress.

Kindergarten Progress

Your child’s teacher will initiate a meeting with you if there are concerns regarding progress. As always, if you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher directly.

Individual Education Plans

If your child has an individual education plan (IEP), you will receive an updated copy during the next reporting cycle in January. If you recently had an individual placement and review committee meeting, your child’s IEP will be provided to you prior to January. Please contact your child’s special education resource teacher (SERT) if you have any questions.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parent community for your ongoing commitment to Wilshire Elementary School and for your patience through the recent labour situation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
