The Ministry of Education requires all School Boards in the Province of Ontario to provide a fall checklist Progress Report.

Report Cards and the Reporting of Student ProgressIntroduction to the Progress Report for Parents
At the Durham District School Board, home and school communication is an essential component to student success. In elementary schools, the first report that will be sent home will be a Progress Report. This report will help parent(s)/guardian(s) understand their child’s growth in learning skills and work habits. Teachers will also indicate a student’s progress with respect to curriculum expectations addressed in the first months of school in one of three categories, Progressing With Difficulty, Progressing Well, and Progressing Very Well.
