Updating Email Accounts to Receive Report Cards

Microsoft email users such as Hotmail, Live and MSN accounts have very strict filters and it appears that SD20.bc.ca has been placed on a restricted email access list. You will; therefore, not be able to receive your student’s report card unless you take a minute to add @sd20.bc.ca to your ‘safe senders’ list in order to receive emails from JL Crowe. Some help may be found here:

Passport to Education Program

A Passport to Education is a small booklet that contains stamps awarded to students for achievement in academic and non-academic areas. Students can use their passport award towards the cost of their post-secondary education or job-training program.

The Passport to Education Program will be phased out over the next three years beginning in September 2013 for grade 10 stamps allocation, followed by grade 11 stamps allocation in September 2014 and grade 12 stamps allocation in September 2015.  

As two-thirds of the weighting must be on the academic component using a student’s course grades for the best five provincially authorized courses and/or Board Authority authorized (BAA) courses that result in a percent or letter grade, JL Crowe awaits confirmation of student final marks that may include students who write or re-write exams in August of their graduation year. We endeavour to have grade 12 passport to education booklets / stamps available for students by mid-October.

Passport to Education stamps expire five years from September 30th of a student’s expected graduating year.

Edmodo

We are transitioning the school from several different online communication tools to Edmodo. Your child has a single unique code that allows you to see and receive notifications from their teachers (if they are currently using Edmodo). Please take a minute to look at your child's Edmodo page (have them show you) and then set up your own account in Edmodo.

How to retrieve parent codes:

The code for parent accounts can be retrieved from your child’s Edmodo account.  The code will be located on the right panel, below the notifications section.  Link: Edmodo How to for Parents
