JOY Burch says that consultation is open on student achievement reporting in ACT public schools.

“We are seeking public feedback on how policies and templates for student reporting can ensure parents and carers receive consistent information about their child’s achievement from Preschool to Year 12,” Joy said.

“The new Reporting Student Achievement (Preschool to Year 12) Policy will reflect the use of nationally agreed Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards to report student achievement.

“We would like to better understand what information parents want about their child’s learning, and in what form,” Ms Burch said.

A six week public consultation on the draft policy and draft report templates will commence on 23 March and close on 15 May 2015, including an online survey.

“Building and maintaining genuine partnerships between schools and families and actively engaging parents in their child’s learning are my priorities, as is providing parents with accurate, objective and readily understandable information about their child’s academic progress.

“I encourage the community to provide feedback by visiting the ACT Government’s Time to Talk website at”
