Status Report

What is It?

The status report is an update of your learning project. It reports on how the project is progressing. The status report can be combined with your  midterm report.  However, we suggest that you submit them separately, since the information contained in the status report can be used as a learning trace at the monitoring meeting.

The length of your document will depend on the variety of activities you have carried out at the time of writing it, but one or two pages may be sufficient.

When Should It be Sent?

The status report and midterm report must be sent between the 3rd and 5th month following the implementation of your learning project, except :

  • If you withdraw your child from school between January 1 and March 31, you don’t need to submit a midterm report. You can incorporate your status report into the completion report;
  • If you withdraw your child from school after March 31, you don’t need to submit a status report or a midterm report, only the completion report.

Where Should It be Sent?

All reports should be sent to your resource person at the Direction de l’enseignement à la maison (DEM). You can send it via the Secure Site, by e-mail or by post.

What Should It Include?

  1. If you have made any changes to your Learning Project, explain them briefly.
  2. A sentence to indicate whether the project is going well.
  3. A non-exhaustive list of activities carried out and resources used for each subject.
  4. The approximate time allocated to each subject.

Tips :

You don’t need to write down everything you did each day in detail. The approximate time could be an approximate frequency (every day, once a week, etc.) or an example of a typical day.

Just be sure to write down a few activities for each compulsory subject to show that you’re fulfilling your legal obligations.

Don’t hesitate to briefly describe an activity if you are having difficulty showing  a connection with the QEP.

For example:

If my child, in Elementary cycle 1 listens to the program Organisation Super Insolite and I want to list it as a math activity, I could describe the program by saying that it teaches mathematical notions and concepts.

I’d also write about an activity that has been carried out to put the new learning into practice, such as “Practice the new notions learned with exercises from the workbook.” or “Consolidate the notions learned with [insert name] board game.”
