Report Card Opinions vs. Facts

New! The Report Card Opinions vs. Facts (Adobe PDF Document 70 KB) sheet addresses some misconceptions about departmental expectations regarding assessment and grading by referencing information from the Manitoba Provincial Report Card Policy and Guidelines.


Provincial Parent-Friendly Report Card Initiative

A new section on Assessment and Grading has been added, including resources for mathematics grading (Grades 1 to 8) and frequently asked questions. New!

In September 2010, Premier Greg Selinger announced the introduction of a parent-friendly report card to ensure that parents get the information they need to be full partners in their children's education. The new report card is written in plain language, allowing teachers to enrich the reporting with personalized information about each student. The provincial report card will help to enhance the quality of education in Manitoba and to build strong partnerships amongst students, teachers and parents.


Implementation

The 2012-13 school year was a voluntary implementation year for school divisions. Mandatory implementation for school divisions begins in the 2013-14 school year.

Pilot Testing and Consultation

The new report card was developed through consultation with parents and educators. An advisory committee with members consisting of the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils (MAPC), the Manitoba Association of School Business Officials (MASBO), the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents (MASS), the Manitoba Teachers' Society (MTS), and the Manitoba School Boards Association (MSBA) was established for ongoing consultation and feedback.

The new report card was pilot tested in the 2011-2012 school year with feedback from parents teachers used to make revisions.
