Overview: Are you tired of writing report comments that are time consuming and often misunderstood or misinterpreted by parents? You might be considering other and more authentic ways of communicating student progress and achievement to parents? Perhaps you’re interested in innovative ways of strengthening learning partnerships between schools and families? If you have answered ‘yes’ to any (or all) of these questions, then come along and hear about GEPS Connects at Granville East Public School, and our shift to a forward looking reporting process that maximises student and parent voice and is designed to help students improve their learning. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions, and consider how the process could be adapted or re-designed to suit other school contexts.
