Report Cards

Report Cards are issued for students from grades Primary to 12 three to four times each year:

  • Grade Primary to 6: fall, winter/spring and the end of June.
  • Grade 7-9: fall, winter spring and the end of June. (Some students in grades 7-9 may receive three report cards, depending on the school configuration).
  • Grade 10-12: fall, winter, spring and the end of June.

The report card format used by CCRSB schools is the same format used at schools throughout Nova Scotia and is mandated by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Questions about your child's report card should be directed to your child's teacher and/or school principal.

Report cards consist of the following information:

  • Learner Profile
    The Learner Profile is a snapshot of the student’s work habits and social development. As they have an impact on learning success, it is important for parents and students to understand what they are and how the student is doing in these areas.

  • Attendance Record
    Attendance Record tracks the days students have been absent against possible school days for each month in the term.Achievement of Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Achievement of Expected Learning Outcomes
    charts the student’s progress and achievement in relation to the expected learning outcomes for the current reporting period. Learning outcomes define what students are expected to know and be able to do in a particular subject area.

As Grade Primary is a transitional year, progress is reported through teacher comments only that highlight the student's academic strengths and needs, and provide suggestions.

For Grades 1-6, progress is reported using A, B, C or D as described below and accompanying comments that highlight the student's academic strengths and needs, and provide suggestions.

 DEMONSTRATION OF ACHIEVEMENT OF THE EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES ADDRESSED DURING THE CURRENT REPORTING PERIOD.
A The student demonstrates achievement with thorough understanding and application of concepts and skills in relation to the expected learning outcomes.
B The student demonstrates achievement with good understanding and application of concepts and skills in relation to the expected learning outcomes.
C The student demonstrates achievement with basic understanding and application of concepts and skills in relation to the expected learning outcomes.
D The student demonstrates achievement with limited understanding and application of concepts and skills in relation to the expected learning outcomes. The student has not met expectations.

For Grades 7-12, progress is reported using a percentage grade as described below and accompanying comments that highlight the student's academic strengths and needs, and provide suggestions.

 DEMONSTRATION OF PERFORMANCE IN RELATION TO THE EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES FOR THIS COURSE.
90-100% The student demonstrates excellent understanding and application of concepts and skills in relation to the learning outcomes.
