Parents are invited to Prince George Secondary School (PGSS) this evening to give input on what they would like to see their children’s report cards look like.
“Information we are looking at includes Parent-Teacher meetings, regular Student-Parent check-ins, is there a way to use technology?” says Prince George – Valemount MLA, Shirley Bond. “So as the world changes and the curriculum changes we need to make sure parents get information they are looking for about their kids progress.”
Tonight’s meeting is one of 6 public consultations that will take place across the province. “A number of parents and the School Board approached me and originally Prince George was not on that list,” says Bond. “So what was most important to me was to speak to the Minister and ask if we could have a consultation session in Prince George.”
While the event is focused on K-9 reporting, the Chair of the Prince George District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC), Gillian Burnett, encourages all parents to attend. “You know what you would have liked to have seen, and perhaps you have a child that isn’t ready for school yet. By all means come down and share with us what is it you would like to know about the progress of your child.”
A casual drop-in is being held from 5 -7 p.m. A brainstorming workshop from 7 -8p.m. will allow parents the opportunity to discuss their thoughts further in small group sessions. Those who are unable to attend can share feedback online at http://engage.gov.bc.ca/yourkidsprogress until February 28.
