No public elementary school report cards in Simcoe County, Muskoka this term

Boards Say Continuing Job Action Means Report Cards Can't Be Completed

The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and Trillium Lakelands District School board (TLDSB) have announced report cards for Grades 1 to 8, along with Kindergarten Communication of Learning Documents, cannot be completed, due to ongoing job action by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO).

The report cards were due to be handed out on February 14.

The ETFO represents elementary teachers, occasional teachers, and designated early childhood educators. The union launched a work-to-rule campaign on November 26 – a partial withdrawal of services that includes the following provision:

  • NOT complete Term 1 Report Cards – teachers WILL provide the school administrator with a class list of marks for the various subjects/strands taught, or one brief comment per frame for the Kindergarten Communication of Learning

The SCDSB and TLDSB encourage parents to contact their child’s teacher if they have questions regarding their child’s academic progress and/or well-being.
