In September 2020, the Ministry of Education implemented the new elementary 2020 Mathematics Curriculum.
One of the changes that came with the revised curriculum is how mathematics marks are reported on the report card. Previously, students were assigned grades based on individual math strands; with the new curriculum, students are now assigned one overall mark for mathematics. The change recognizes, values and emphasizes the interconnected nature of the strands in the mathematics curriculum. The comments section will describe significant strengths demonstrated by the student and identify next steps for improvement. When appropriate, teachers may make reference to particular mathematics curriculum strands in their comments.
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher directly.
