Student Accident Insurance - Kids Plus™


For your convenience, we have made arrangements for families to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance offers protection against the unexpected costs of injury from accidents, and is especially valuable for families who:

  • do not have medical or dental plans,
  • have limited plans, as it may help supplement health and dental benefits, or
  • have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities.

The Ministry of Education’s Reporting Order supports districts to maintain the tried and true reporting strategy including three (two in secondary) report cards per year (semester). Also required are two informal contacts with parents from teachers. In addition, the new reporting order permits an alternative form of communication, which is ongoing between teacher, parents, and the student. Five of our schools participate in an Innovation Grant project, sponsored by the Ministry of Education, to delve more deeply into the possibilities of online portfolios (SD46 is using FreshGrade) to enhance communication with parents. A summative report at the end of the year is also a requirement.
