Provincial Parent-Friendly Report Card Initiative

In September 2010, Premier Greg Selinger announced the introduction of a parent-friendly report card to ensure that parents get the information they need to be full partners in their children's education. The new report card is written in plain language, allowing teachers to enrich the reporting with personalized information about each student. The provincial report card will help to enhance the quality of education in Manitoba and to build strong partnerships amongst students, teachers and parents.

Pilot Testing and Consultation
The new report card was developed through consultation with parents and educators. An advisory committee with members consisting of the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils (MAPC), the Manitoba Association of School Business Officials (MASBO), the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents (MASS), the Manitoba Teachers' Society (MTS), and the Manitoba School Boards Association (MSBA) was established for ongoing consultation and feedback.

The new report card was pilot tested in the 2011-2012 school year with feedback from parents teachers used to make revisions.

Report Card Templates
The following templates are available for download as PDF  files. These are not for direct use but rather to illustrate the format and content. The templates include certain elements that require local modification.
