District Pilot Project


Intent of the District Pilot Project:

The CSL Pilot Project is a VSD initiative designed to help district reporting practices better align with the redesigned curriculum and the Ministry of Education’s Interim Student Reporting Guidelines. By agreeing to participate in this pilot, your school team is committing to:
  1. using the District CSL new draft templates developed for the 2017/18 school year.
  2. meeting the VSD CSL requirements (2 written reports and a minimum of 3 other opportunities to communicate student learning to parents).
  3. participating in focus group session(s) (school and district based) throughout the school year.
  4. providing samples and feedback regarding types of communications used.
