Likely no report cards for those younger than Grade 10 in Parksville Qualicum Beach

Superintendent Rollie Koop says there still is a possibility there will be be report cards issued for the younger students

Students below Grade 10 in District 69 are unlikely to get report cards this semester unless something changes in the ongoing teacher’s strike, or there is a Labour Relations Board ruling and accompanying resources.

Teachers first voted to start ‘work-to-rule’ type job action March 6 stopping written communication with administrators and extra circular activities.

Since then the LRB has ruled that final exams and report cards are an essential service for grades 10-12, meaning they will receive report cards.

Superintendent Rollie Koop said they are not prepared to make a formal announcement that report cards will not be done for the lower grades — as several districts have — but that as things stand they don’t have the necessary information from teachers, or the resources to do report cards.

He left the possibility open if there was a dramatic last minute change in the current situation.
