The Board of Education of School District #20 (Kootenay-Columbia) (the “Board”) directs that assessment, evaluation and reporting procedures be constructed to support the principles of learning and best teaching practices which will enable all students to maximize their potential. 

 

To this end, the Board directs that Ministry of Education (the “Ministry”) policy regarding the assessment and evaluation of student progress, and reporting on student progress, be adhered to.  And finally, each school will establish its own processes and timetables for assessment, evaluation and reporting which will align with both Ministry and Board policy and procedures.

 
Note: The "District Assessment, Evaluation & Reporting Guidelines and Procedures" document is based on and complements the Ministry of Education's legislated policies and regulations. It also reflects current 'best practice' as it relates to assessment and evaluation. The Ministry of Education document "Reporting Student Progress: Policy and Practice" is a companion document to this district document.
