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.
