ECC parents can download their child’s semester 1 report from the gecko portal today. This report is just one way that parents are informed about their child’s learning. At SIS, assessing and reporting on student progress takes place continually as part of the teaching and learning process. Students are given multiple opportunities to demonstrate understanding and growth through authentic and teacher guided learning experiences. Assessment is ongoing, progressive, captures growth and focuses on what children know, understand and can do. Teachers regularly communicate student progress with parents in multiple ways such as through direct communication and photo sharing; as well as through formal channels such as Portfolios, Learning Stories, Parent Conferences, and Progress Reports. The next primary parent conference will be held on Thursday, February 1st.
