Report Cards: Upcoming Changes

Good afternoon, Helen Detwiler Community!

We wanted to bring your attention to a few changes you will begin to see with the upcoming Term 1 Report Cards which are currently scheduled to go home electronically on February 19th, 2021.


The Ministry of Education released a new Mathematics Curriculum this year. Your child’s teacher has been utilizing this new document to guide the mathematics lessons taking place in class. One of the changes this new curriculum introduces is a more cohesive approach to assessing mathematics. Previously, students would receive a separate grade on each of the five strands/categories covered in class on their February and June report cards. The new policy introduces a single grade to reflect the overall learning of the student in mathematics.

If you would like to learn more about the new mathematics curriculum, this resource contains more details on the changes to how mathematics is being taught and assessed in your child’s classroom


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s classroom teacher or connect with me directly at the office by calling or emailing the school.

Stay well,

Mr. Azzopardi
