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 is conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.
• In January, parents of students in grades 4-12 received a survey from Alberta Education.
• This week, students in grades 4-12 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with our school.
Parents of students in grades 4-12, your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child(ren) is/are receiving, so we encourage you to submit your survey by next week, if you have not yet done so.
Survey results will be available to the office in May 2018, and will be reported publicly in November 2018 as part of our 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports. (MN, writing from a form letter sent by Alberta Education)
