Digital report cards for secondary school students have been delayed “due to technical issues,” says Ottawa’s largest school board.
The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board report cards were to have been available Friday.
The board apologized for the delay, but said it was working “to implement additional steps to ensure accuracy and privacy issues are fully addressed before posting the data on the portal.”
Graduating students who have applied for university and college will be able to view their marks on the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre and Ontario College Application Servicewebsite next week.
“This will ensure that those students who require marks for admission requirements have access to the information they need,” said the board.
“We understand that you are keen to access the report cards. We are working to resolve the technical issues and make the report cards available as soon as we can.”
Report cards will be accessible to parents and students until Aug. 14 on the homepage of the email@example.com portal.
After Aug. 14, report cards will still be securely stored in the portal, along with the student’s report card history.
The Ottawa Catholic School Board’s digital report cards were released on Tuesday through the same website provider. Parents reported problems in accessing the digital report cards.
