Labour Relations Update - December 22, 2019

As a result of strike action taken by the ETFO, Term One Elementary Report Cards will not be issued to students in Kindergarten to Grade 8.  ETFO has established sanctions which provide that elementary teachers will not:

  • complete Term 1 Report Cards – teachers will provide the school administrator with a class list of marks for the various subjects/strands taught, or one brief comment per frame for the Kindergarten Communication of Learning;
  • undertake the role of report card administrator;
  • file the Progress Report, the Term 1 Report Card or the Kindergarten Communication of Learning.

Without these steps in place, it is not possible to produce and distribute the report cards.

While elementary report cards are not being distributed, teachers will continue to communicate with families about their children’s education. Parents and guardians who have questions or concerns about their child’s learning or well-being are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher.

Students in grades 9-12 will continue to receive report cards as scheduled.  The report cards will include marks but no comments, as the provision of comments is struck work by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF).
