Mr.Hogg- Alberta Education 
Alberta education curriculum program of studies- the law states each school is to inform families of studentsprogress & such. We are to inform or educated in things happening in Alberta. 
Report cards with a level 4 means a student is at grade level. 
Reporting to parents is to tell them what students are learning and how they are learning & understanding concepts. 
Gr.1 is doing outcome based reporting this year. Outcome based reporting is a monthly report system that allows the teacher to record where that student is for specific tasks learned. 
* Do parents like the outcome based reporting? 
* Changes by law we can't give a class average K-12 
* Parents always want to know where their children are so this reporting helps give a monthly break down.
