Thank you to all of our W.H. Ford families that attended the ICE presentation on Thursday, January 26th.
Here is a link to a few of the resources that the ICE unit provided us with:
The Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit (Sask ICE) is an Integrated Unit that falls under the Criminal Investigations Division of the Regina Police Service.
The Sask ICE Unit is comprised of members from the Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service, Prince Albert Police Service and the RCMP.
Due to the increasing crimes of exploiting children through the use of the Internet, a proposal seeking an Integrated Unit to investigate these crimes, was brought forward to these respective Policing agents and the Provincial Government.The Sask ICE Unit became operational in the spring of 2009.
The Units mandate is to reduce Internet-facilitated child sexual exploitation by identifying victimized children and investigating and assisting in the prosecution of sexual offenders.
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.
