CMSD82 Superintendent Letter to Parents-Guardians re Report Cards – June 25,2014  (Letter in PDF format)


Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers:

I am writing to you today to provide you with an update on the status of report cards for Coast Mountains School District students.

Labour Relations Board (LRB) rulings received on June 12 and 20, 2014, respectively, provide the following essential services requirements for implementation by school districts province wide:

  • Invigilation of Grade 10-12 Provincial Examinations.
  • Compilation and submission of final grades for Grade 12 students in a form ready for entry into BCESIS no later than June 20, 2014.
  • The delivery of final marks for Grade 10 and 11 students.

The Ministry of Education’s expectations based on the essential services designation received from the Labour Relations Board on June 12, 2014 is provided for your information:

  • Report cards will be generated for Grade 12 students and classroom marks will be submitted to the Ministry data system for the preparation of transcripts.
  • The compilation and submission of final grades for Grade 12 students is required to facilitate entry into the school data system by June 20, 2014.
  • With respect to other grades, the expectation of the Ministry is that parents will have access to the information they need concerning their child’s progress at school.

Students in Coast Mountains School District will receive Grade 10, 11 and 12 report cards as these marks have been ordered by the LRB. Kindergarten to Grade 9 marks and report cards have not been deemed essential by the LRB, and therefore, will not be distributed due to the labour dispute. School principals will contact parents directly if there are any concerns about your child’s placement for September 2014. All students in Kindergarten to Grade 9 will be promoted to the next grade level unless parents have been involved in discussions with the school principal.

Please continue to follow the media for news on the latest labour dispute developments and our district website www.cmsd.bc.ca will also have all current information as it becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. It is our continued hope for a resolution between the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation and the British Columbia Public School Employers’ Association.

Sincerely yours,

Katherine McIntosh
Superintendent of Schools
