Subject group names together with assessment criteria & objectives within the planners and gradebook will be updated in July 2014 before the start of the academic year and will be effective for all classes created after August 1, 2014.

Assessment & reporting for the 2013-2014 academic year will remain the same with the old subject guides and with the grade boundaries provided in the MYP Coordinator's Handbook for 2013-2014.
