Report Cards


Parent Portal Access for Viewing Report Cards 

Term 2 Report Cards will be published to the MyEducation BC Online Parent Portal on Friday, March 6, 2020.

Please ensure your accounts and passwords are up to date prior to this date. Each parent or guardian will have their own separate account as long as they have separate email addresses.

To Access the MyEducation BC System:

1. Visit https://www.myeducation.gov.bc.ca/aspen/logon.do.   We recommend that you make this a bookmark and that you use a desktop computer or laptop instead of a mobile device.

2. Make sure popups are enabled for your browser. If you are having trouble in one browser (such as Safari), we recommend trying another browser (such as Firefox).

3. Your Login ID is the email address that you have given to the school. DO NOT copy/ paste the password – the copy process sometimes adds a space. Both user names and passwords are case sensitive. Five unsuccessful log in attempts will disable your account. Passwords are good for 90 days.

4. Enter your user name and password then click “Log On” to access the system. If it is your first time signing in or it has been more than 90 days since your last password change, you will be prompted to change your password immediately. You will also need to enter security information so that in the future you can click “I forgot my password” to receive a new password.

5. Once inside the MyEducation BC system, you can navigate around to view information for your student(s). When report cards are published to the Portal, they are accessible in the Published Reports area and will appear as PDF documents. These should be printed or saved electronically by parents because they are posted for a limited amount of time.

PLEASE NOTE: Students that are enrolled in courses outside of Handsworth Secondary or at different grade levels, may have more than one report card.  The following scenarios will likely include multiple report cards for students:

  • Students cross-enrolled with other schools
  • Students enrolled in  Distributed Learning courses
  • Students enrolled in Academy courses
  • Students enrolled in a course above or below their grade level

 

PARENTS NEW TO HANDSWORTH : 

Once your Parent Portal Account is created, you will receive an email from MyEducation BC with instructions about how to log into the MyEducation BC Parent Portal. Please check your email inbox and junk mail for an email from accounts such as sysop@myeducation.gov.bc.ca or admin@myeducation.gov.bc.ca which will include your User ID and temporary password. Content in the email will include the following information: Welcome to the Handsworth MyEducation BC PARENT PORTAL which will allow access to see grades, attendance and other information.

Should you have any questions or concerns about Parent Portal access, please do not hesitate to contact us at handsworth@sd44.ca. Please include your name as well as your Handsworth student’s name and the name of any other students that you have within the North Vancouver School District (SD44).

We will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible. We receive a high volume of inquires in the week leading up to Report Cards being posted so we recommend ensuring that you are able to successfully log in before then.

Unlock Your Future:  The Key to Scholarships Seminar

Date: Monday, October 28th, 2019

Time: 6:30pm

Place:  Handsworth Small Gym

Admission: By optional donation

Join Brittany Palmer of Unlock your Future as she leads students and parents through a step-by-step program for navigating the scholarship process. Students in all grades and parents are welcome and encouraged to attend: it is never too early to get started. This comprehensive presentation covers topics ranging from building your scholarship foundation to crafting a strong personal statement. Contrary to popular belief, students do not need 95% averages or international achievements to win scholarships. Through this seminar, Brittany debunks common scholarship myths and breaks down the complex process into a manageable form. Using this program, Brittany and her younger brother Bo collectively won 35 scholarships totaling over $125,000. Since 2005, she has shared her story and strategies with tens of thousands of students, parents and educators. The Unlock your Future Scholarship Workbook ($25) and Scholarship Kit ($30), which are accompaniments to the program, will be available for purchase. Through this dynamic and informative presentation, Brittany demonstrates that scholarships are indeed possible.
