Report Card not given much attention

The School District 60 Superintendant is not putting much weight on the Fraser Institute’s Report Card.

North Peace Secondary School has been ranked 274 out of 288 across British Columbia and the Yukon.

Larry Espe says that although it’s preferable to be ranked higher on any list, the district looks at both provincial and internal exam results to determine if there are any underlying problems within a specific school.

According to Espe, low marks given in one year aren’t as important as overall trends.

He says that with the new programs that will be put in place when the Enerplex finished, the school may have more opportunities to engage students

Meanwhile, the Principal of the Christian Life School, Don Irwin, says the school was not included because it has fewer than the required 15 grade 12 students needed to be part of the rankings.
