Report cards will be issued in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith school district, but there will be no marks or comments from teachers in it.

B.C. teachers are currently in phase one of their job action, which involves abstaining from administrative duties. Report cards will be issued, but will only include marks for courses taught by a principal or vice-principal and the student’s attendance.

However, parents and guardians can contact teachers directly for information on their child’s progress. Students in Grade 12 can contact their school counselor to obtain marks.

The B.C. Public School Employers’  Association has asked the Labour Relations Board to reconsider their position on allowing teachers to not issue report cards as part of their job action. A ruling is expected by the end of November.
