Report Card on Secondary Schools in British Columbia and Yukon 2009

Type: Research Studies
Date Published: June 17, 2009
Research Topics:
Education, School Report Cards

The Report Card on Secondary Schools in British Columbia and Yukon collects a variety of relevant, objective indicators of school performance into one easily accessible, public document so that all interested parties-parents, school administrators, teachers, students, and taxpayers-can analyze and compare the performance of individual schools. Parents use the Report Card's indicator values, ratings, and rankings to compare schools when they choose an education provider for their children. Parents and school administrators use the results to identify areas of academic performance in which improvement can be made.

Where parents can choose among several schools for their children, the Report Card provides a valuable tool for making a decision. Because it makes comparisons easy, the Report Card alerts parents to those nearby schools that appear to have more effective academic programs. Parents can also determine whether schools of interest are improving over time. By first studying the Report Card, parents will be better prepared to ask relevant questions when they interview the principal and teachers at the schools under consideration.
