We would like to inform you that the Central Okanagan School District has recently transitioned to a new provincial student information system called MyEducationBC. Information such as demographic information, emergency contacts, transcripts, report cards, class lists, and schedules among many other things are managed in this system. The transition has gone well; however, we want to bring one potential concern to the attention of our parent community.
Some students in our school have legal names that are different from their usual or preferred names. MyEducationBC does allow schools the ability to distinguish between a student's preferred name and their legal name; however, at the moment, schools are unable to print preferred names on documents, including report cards, student schedules, and others. Only legal names are available for some functions and this is out of the school's control. We recognize that this is troublesome for some families and we apologize for any potential issues that this system design may present.
The concern has been brought forth to the production company for a remedy but the issue is not yet resolved. We hope for a system update in the near future that will address this concern.
Thank you for your patience with this matter.
Dr. Knox Middle School
