On May 8th, we will be activating the MyEd Family Portal. The portal will allow parents/guardians to view things such as live attendance entries, student schedules, next year course requests, course achievement records and term and final report cards.
After May 8th, you will receive an email directly from MyEd BC with instructions on how to access the system and configure your account. If the email address that you have on file at the school is not correct, please contact the school and provide us with the correct email address.
The Burnaby School District has produced reference materials for parents related to logging in and general portal use. These can be viewed at http://blogs.sd41.bc.ca/myedbc/parent-resources/ If you do not have access to the internet, or are having difficulty logging in please contact the school between the hours of 8:30 and 3:30 pm.
June 2017, all report cards, except those for Grade 12 students, will only be available electronically using the portal. Report card attachments for all grades will be printed and these documents will be picked up by students.
This year’s Grad Dinner Dance will take place at 6:00pm on Tuesday, June 27 at the Pinnacle Vancouver Harbourside Hotel – 1133 West Hastings St, Vancouver. Parents are welcome to come to take photos between 9:00 – 10:00pm.
Students in Grades 4, 7, 10 and 12, their parents and all staff in B.C. public schools are invited to participate in an annual online Student Learning Survey about their school experience. This Survey is unique in its scope, size and usefulness to schools. It gathers information from parents, school staff and students on topics related to school environment, safety, and achievement. The Information is used for planning in individual schools and provides a district and provincial perspective.
We encourage you to participate in this survey, as the results are important in identifying current strengths, as well as determining where the school needs to focus on improvement. The surveys contain standard questions for the Province – in addition, questions from the school and/or district that focus on local conditions or issues are included. The Ministry of Education produced Provincial, District and School Reports for previous years, which can be viewed at the following site:
Parents can access the survey at www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey/access.htm (please select your child’s school and grade level in order to access the appropriate survey).
The survey will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete and will be available until May 26, 2017.
