For the second year in a row, parents at Point Clare Public School will NOT be receiving a midyear report on their child's progress.

The only written report being offered to the parent community is the end of year report.

The Department of Education's Policy entitled "Curriculum planning and programming, assessing and reporting to parents K-12" states that: Schools will provide parents/carers with a written report on their child's learning at least twice per year. The components of the written report will meet the Policy Standards. (section 1.3.3).

Written reports are valuable tools for parents to gauge how their child is performing, and to highlight any issues that their child is having within the classroom environment. For parents who work out of the home full time and who are unable to attend class interviews, a written report can be the first indication of any problem their child is having.

It is unacceptable to make this decision without informing the parent community and without asking for our input.

In accordance with this, we would like to ask you to sign this petition, if you would like to have a midyear written report for your child.

We, the undersigned, are concerned parents who urge the school executive to deliver written midyear reports for our children, in accordance with Departmental Policy.
