Cliff Drive Elementary School

Cliff Drive SOARS!

Welcome to École Cliff Drive Elementary School

 

   

Dear Parents/Guardians: Please note that the New Communicating Student Learning Term 1 Report Card will be sent home on December 14th. 

 In response to changes to British Columbia's curriculum, the way teachers communicate student learning has also changed. The Delta School District has made changes to the report card structure to align with the redesigned BC curriculum. The report includes a revised achievement indicator scale, and letter grades will be absent on intermediate report cards. The report provides concise, focussed information about your child's strengths and areas for growth.

When reading the reports, I hope families will notice that the reporting is more learner focussed. In addition to the comments from teachers, the reports also include student reflections this year to capture student voice and ownership in learning. Our goal is for students to reflect on the process of their learning and their commitment to the strategies identified to achieve their learning goals. Teachers, school administrators and school district staff have worked hard to develop written reports that add to the ongoing process of reporting student learning. We hope that the report, in addition to parent/teacher conferences, ongoing feedback in the form of assignments sent home, phone calls and emails, help families understand the progress of their children.
