Important Survey from Alberta Education for Parents!
Attention all Grade 10 Parents...
We are at that time of year where we evaluate the effectiveness of what we do at our schools. All grade 10 parents should have received a survey in the mail from the Government of Alberta. The survey is used to help determine our successes and areas of challenge so that we can reflect and improve as we move forward. We would like all parents of grade 10 students to please take a few minutes of your time and fill out the survey. This information is very important to us and we rely on many parents filling out this survey to get reliable data.
Thanks in advance for the taking the time to help improve our school!
Scott Saunders, Principal
Information for parents:
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success.
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.
From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.
In January, parents of students in grades 4, 7 and 10 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.
In February, students in grades 4, 7 and 10 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school. In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.
Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly.
Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2018, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.
