New Process for CRA Student Address Verification
Historically, schools completed letter requests to verify a student’s address and confirmation of attendance at the school; the letter supports parents or guardians to claim Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) child-related benefits. Effective Feb. 1, 2018, this process moves online and now includes a cost-recovery fee of $25.
The parent/guardian or student requests a confirmation letter and verifies their identity online; Financial Services then sets up an account for the service-request fee to be paid. Once paid, Central Administration will send a letter to the requestor via password-protected email, hold a copy at Central Administration or deliver for pick up at the child’s school.
VCHS Education Accountability Pillar Results October 2017
The Accountability Pillar provides a way for school authorities to measure their success, and assess their progress towards meeting their learning goals.
The Accountability Pillar:
- Gives school boards a consistent way to measure their success and assess progress using a broad spectrum of measures
- Helps identify areas that need improvement and set priorities for the future
- Provides school authorities with a wide range of data showing how they are performing
- Focuses on more than student achievement, resulting in a more complete approach to accountability and system improvement
This combined data provides a picture of school authority and individual school performance, including areas of success and potential challenges that may lie ahead. School authorities and schools analyze this data and the many variables that may affect results, allowing school authorities to focus on improving student learning and achievement.

Families should periodically check their fees balance using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. School fees need to be in good standing to be eligible to participate on athletic teams, field trips, graduation activities and other school related activities and events. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
