Statements of Standing
  • Final Report Cards and official signed, sealed Statements of Standing of final marks for students attending school are mailed to the student's home address and to the ISO school facilitator. During the summer months, the duplicate statement(s) will be mailed to the school ISO facilitator during the first week of September.
  • Final Report Cards and official signed, sealed Statements of Standing of final marks for students not attending school will be mailed to the student's home address.
  • One official Statement of Standing is mailed to the student's home address. The DLU will not forward marks to a third party on behalf of students. Students can make a request for a Manitoba High School Mark Statement to be sent to a third party by contacting the Student Records Unit in Russell at 1-800-667-2378.

Students may obtain their marks via Blackboard Learn.

Report Cards

Students and school facilitators are responsible to track students’ marks throughout the course. Unofficial current marks to date can be viewed on Blackboard by accessing the My Grades section of the course. One copy of the official final report card is provided to the student and one copy is sent to the school, if the student is attending a Manitoba school. Students/schools will receive a progress report card if the student is required to rewrite an exam(s) if the credit remains incomplete once all exams have been written.
