  • Enrolling students into your school;
  • Withdrawing students from your school;
  • Updating student information; and
  • Producing reports as required by an authorized entity.

4. Student Cumulative Record

A student's Cumulative Record contains factual, objective and professional information regarding a student's:

  • Academic progress
  • Mid-term and final marks
  • Adaptations
  • Attendance

The information is valuable for professionals in planning and delivering appropriate education programs and supports for the student from year to year, and for enabling teachers to understand the student's strengths. The Cumulative Record is also valuable for assisting in the successful transition of students to another school.

The Student Cumulative Records Guidelines provide information that boards of education, the Conseil scolaire fransaskois and other educational authorities may use to establish procedures for the creation, maintenance, storage and transfer of Cumulative Records.
