My Education BC (MyEdBC) is a school information database used by schools in British Columbia.  The Family Portal is a feature of the MyEdBC systems that is intended to improve communication between teachers, school and families.

 

Beginning in March 2020, all New Westminster schools are using the family portal to provide parents with access to student report cards.  Paper copies of report cards are no longer sent home.
