New Ontario Report Card Format Update
On February 13, 2018, the new Minister of Education, Indira Naidoo-Harris, announced that the province wide implementation of global competencies/transferable skills in the Ontario report card will not more forward for the 2018-19 school year.
It would appear that ETFO’s position is “that while the global competencies/transferable skills are important for students, educators should be able to use their professional judgement to decide where and when global competencies may enhance instruction and student self-reflection. Global competencies/transferable skills should not be evaluated and included on the 2017/18 report card.”
