Introduction to CSL

We are pleased to announce that our school will be participating in the Richmond School District’s Innovation Grant program.  This year we join over 30 schools in Richmond who will be engaged in the Ministry of Education’s Reporting Policy Option A: Communicating Student Learning (CSL).  The other reporting policy option is Option B: Traditional Reporting.  Nine Divisions will be participating in the CSL process at Lee this year.

*If you would like to review points shared at our parent information evening on October 22nd, please click on the pdf attachment(s) below.  Also, please see the attached newsletter which provides useful tips for parents to support in this important learning at home.

Research has shown that good communication between home, school, and child is key to student success. This triangle of communication is designed to provide up-to-date information about student progress and involve the student, teacher, and family in meaningful dialogue throughout the school year. 

For those participating in CSL this year, your child’s progress will be described using the Proficiency Scale provided to us by the Ministry of Education, which is the same scale used on the Grad Literacy Assessment and Grad Numeracy Assessment.

Communicating student learning in this way requires those in the triangle of communication to provide timely and responsive feedback and updates on student progress throughout the school year.  We will engage in this in a variety of ways, including:

• digital portfolio posts and reviews

• learning conference(s) (either by Zoom or in-Person, when possible)

• student reflection and self-assessment of the Core Competencies

• summary of progress (mid-year and end of year)

Please stay in touch with your child's teacher(s) with any questions you may have.  We are on this journey of change and innovation together!
