Principal’s News

May-June Ministry Elementary Exams are starting…soon

As we are approaching the end of year I want to remind you that there are mandatory government exams that occur in elementary. It is very important you be aware the impact these exam results can have for students’ final grades on June report cards.

The Education Act states that in subjects where there is a ministry exam; up to 20% of a student’s final grade must be based on the results of these final examinations. It is therefore critical that students write the final examination so as not to forfeit 20% of their grade. The only exception to this is serious and legitimate illness. If this happens, contact your principal as soon as possible.

At the elementary level there are no re-writes or summer school courses. As well, the elementary exams are process exams that extend over several days (up to 10 days). If students miss a day accommodation can probably be made. However, if students miss more than this there is the distinct possibility that students will forfeit 20% of their final grade.

Should you have questions concerning this issue or exam writing policy, please contact your principal.
