In a report from administration to yesterday’s Board of Education meeting, School District 54 (Bulkley Valley) students still won’t be getting their report cards.

Students didn’t get their report cards earlier in the year due to ongoing job action from the teachers’ union.

The administration in their report cite the action taken by British Columbia Teacher Federation members which states they will not “provide any student assessment data to Administrative Officers or the school office, except Grade 12 marks requires for graduation, post-secondary applications and scholarship purposes.”

The administration’s report said “Report Cards will again not go home as regularly scheduled.”

They say that it is “critical” for parents to contact their child’s teacher to stay informed of progress and that teachers continue to contact parents appropriately regarding student progress.
