LCEEQ would like to thank Chantal Beaulieu, former Assistant Deputy Minister for the English-Speaking and Aboriginal Communities and for Cultural Diversity for her service to the Committee and to the English educational community at large. Chantal was recently named Director General of The Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC). We offer Chantal our sincerest congratulations and look forward to collaborating with her in this new role.

Proposed changes for Standardized Reports Cards

Report Card

In 2011-2012, the Ministry implemented Standardized Report Cards in the youth sector. Numerous requests for adjustments and modifications to these report cards were addressed to government authorities. A number of other issues still remain unresolved.
