This year, in light of the school closures due to COVID-19, report cards will be delivered electronically. The report cards will be delivered directly to parents and guardians by email on Friday, June 26.
Accessing the Electronic Report Card
As an added measure of security to protect your child’s privacy, you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) in order to access the report card. You will find the OEN number on a previous report card – it is a 9-digit number (e.g. xxx-xxx-xxx).
The School Principal’s electronic signature will appear on all student report cards.
If you do not receive an electronic copy of the report card, you may check your son’s or daughter’s marks on the Student Information System (go to www.werbr.ca >students>Student Information System; you will need your child’s student number and birthdate).
Hard copies of the report card will be made available to parents in the fall upon request.
About Your Son or Daughter’s Secondary School Report Card
As a reminder, no student’s mark should be negatively affected by performance during the school closure period due to COVID-19.
Some key points to remember:
- Final marks will reflect work completed from the beginning of the second semester to March 13, as well as any work completed after April 6 that serves to improve the student’s final mark.
- Ratings for Learning Skills and Work Habits will reflect information from the beginning of the second semester and March 13. Reporting on Learning Skills and Work Habits may reflect work completed after April 6 that serves to improve the student’s rating.
- For students in Grades 9 and 10, the code “I” on the report card may be used to indicate insufficient evidence if the student did not have a passing mark prior to March 13th and did not demonstrate progress during the school closure period.
- For students enrolled in Grade 11 and 12 courses, “INS” may for used where the student did not have a passing mark prior to March 13th and did not demonstrate progress during the school closure period.
- If a student receives an “I” or “INS” on their report card, they do not receive a credit for that course.
- Where a student receives an “I” the principal and teaching staff, in consultation with the parents and the student, will determine what type of program would best enable the student to meet the expectations and earn credit for the course, including credit recovery or retaking the credit.
- For Grade 11 and 12 courses, full disclosure will be waived, and no notation will be entered on the Ontario Student Transcript (OST). Any subsequent attempts at completing the course, (whether through credit recovery or retaking the course), will be recorded on the OST.
- For graduating students who were relying on the course for postsecondary admission, special consideration may be given as to how the course is to be recorded. Students and their guidance counsellor or principal, in consultation with parents, will contact the institution’s admission office to explain the nature of the student’s extenuating circumstances.

May God bless you and your family with a safe and enjoyable summer!
