MYEDUCATION BC PARENT PORTAL
Houston Secondary will be using the MyEducation BC Parent Portal to communicate student learning. This change from paper based report cards was due largely to parent feedback from across the district that indicated the desire for a more streamlined way for schools to communicate student progress with parents and guardians.
Parents will receive an email with instructions on how to login to the Parent Portal shortly. Report cards will be published to the Parent Portal at the end of each term and parents will be notified by email once they are posted.
