With the start of school last week Manitoba Education Minister James Allum has announced the government will continue to support parents to help their children succeed. He says they’ve put more resources online about the curriculum students are learning to help parents be more engaged in their children’s education.
The My Child In School website gives parents information about what their children are learning in compulsory subject areas such as English language arts, mathematics and science. The website is organized by grade and each compulsory subject area features information about what students are learning, how students are assessed and other information and resources for parents.
The government is also continuing with the implementation of a revised kindergarten to grade 8 math curriculum to ensure children get basic skills in math and developing a new revised language arts curriculum to ensure students are getting a strong foundation in reading, writing, grammar and spelling.
