Changes to Darwin High Term 3 Reports

Changes to Darwin High Term 3 Reports

Dear Parents and Carers

This Semester Darwin High is trialling a change to reporting which will continue to provide you with timely and accurate information about your child’s academic progress.

The Term 3 report will be replaced with a progress report, using the traffic light* system of green, yellow and red. Progress reports will be available on the Friday of weeks 5 and 10 of Term 3 for all Year levels including SIEU, and week 4 of Term 4 for Year 10, Year 11 and SIEU. There are no changes to the final Semester 2 report which will be available at the end of Semester 2 for Year 10, Year 11 and SIEU, and late November for Year 12.

Please continue to use Compass to check your child’s results for individual learning tasks and contact teachers if you have any questions about academic progress.

If at any time you have questions about, or feedback on this trial please let me know.

Assistant Principal Teaching and Learning

*Traffic light system
Green - progress is satisfactory and expected to achieve a C grade or better if this is maintained
Yellow - borderline progress to date and changes are needed to ensure a C grade or better is achieved with certainty
Red - there is concern that progress to date is unsatisfactory and if continued, a grade of C or better will not be achieved
