The Yukon government is looking for input from students, parents, school councils and communities on proposed changes to the way teachers assess students, including report cards and parent-teacher meetings.
We ask that you take a few minutes to fill out an online survey and provide feedback on how you think teachers should assess your child’s progress at school and how they should communicate with you about it.
Please follow the link below to fill out this online survey:
You can also visit the Yukon Education website to learn more:
The survey will be open for submissions until April 12, 2017.

Interim Reports for Grade 10-12 students are being mailed out this week! This will hopefully give students the option of getting caught up on work over spring break if necessary before our Term 3 ends on Thursday, April 13. Teachers can be contacted by email through our contacts page.
Please visit the admissions page for the slides from the March 6, 2017 Information Night presentation.
Whoops! We forgot to post our January newsletter. Our next newsletter will come with interim reports that will be mailed on March 9.
Yukon's curriculum is changing.
A revised curriculum for grades K through 9 will be implemented in Yukon schools starting next year. A new graduation program will follow for Grades 10 through 12 in subsequent years.
Vanier has been implementing parts of the revised curricula for the last several years and we are looking forward to continuing this process.
Yukon Education is making presentations at school council meetings throughout the territory. Vanier's presentation is scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, February 20 at 7:00 pm in the Vanier Library. (It will be preceded by Vanier's School Council meeting starting at 5:30 pm - all are welcome!)
We realize this is short notice - if you are interested in the presentation and can't make tomorrow's at Vanier, there are several others scheduled for the Whitehorse area with the same content.
More more information on the curriculum changes and to see the schedule of presentations, please visit Yukon Education's website: http://www.education.gov.yk.ca/curriculum.html
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the school - firstname.lastname@example.org or call 667-5901.
The information meeting for Grade 9 students and parents to discuss course selection that originally scheduled for tonight at 7 pm has been postponed to Tuesday, February 21 at 7 pm. This information meeting will cover important information about graduation requirements.
We offer our apologies for the late notice and for any inconvenience that has caused. Thank you.
Due to this change, course selection sheets will not be due until Thursday, February 23 and will not be entered into the computer until the following week.
