Regina Public School Division Focus

Parent Portal Passwords

In response to Saskatchewan Ministry of Education curriculum outcomes, school divisions across the province have adjusted their report cards. The new curriculum is smaller and expressed in "outcome" rather than objective form.  Teachers base  curriculum on outcomes, using them to determine assessment and decide on the resources that the class will use.  Curruculum requirements require problem-solving, critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, scientific open-mindedness and willingness to question and promote discussion.  Mastery of outcomes requires assessment that goes beyond tests and includes a variety of evidence that goes beyond numbers. 

Elementary (Grades 1 - 8) Regina Public Schools students receive a Progress Report that gives an overall course Level of Acheivement.  In addition, Levels of Achievement are given for specific outcomes for literacy and mathematics in an Outcome Report. 

A parent portal is available to all parents in RPS for students in grades one to eight. 

To encourage regular communication between school and home regarding student achievement, PowerSchool Parent Portal is available for all students from Grades 1 - 12.  Parents should contact their child's school for information for accessing Parent Portal. 

Please visit the office to obtain your Parent Portal password.

Safe School Procedures

As you visit the school you will notice signs on our main entrance door asking visitors and families to check in at the office.

The safety of your child is most important to us.

Families of students in PreKindergarten, Kindergarten and Discovery Pre-School will be encouraged to pick up their child at the classroom entrance doors.

Families with children in Grades 1 to 8 will be asked to meet their child on the playground

or to wait at the office for their child.

 

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to ensure the safety of all of our children.
