ACCOUNTABILITY PILLAR SURVEY
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, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.
Renseignements à l’intention des parents :
Le pilier de responsabilisation, qui sert de bilan annuel du système d’éducation, offre à Alberta Education et aux autorités scolaires l’occasion de s’assurer que nous préparons les élèves à la réussite.
Le pilier de responsabilisation utilise un ensemble de seize indicateurs. Les données relatives à chaque indicateur consistent en les résultats de sondages menés auprès des élèves, des parents et des enseignants qui portent sur divers aspects de la qualité de l’éducation, du rendement des élèves, y compris les taux de décrochage et d’achèvement au secondaire, et des évaluations provinciales de l’apprentissage des élèves.
De janvier à la fin février, Alberta Education mènera le sondage annuel du pilier de responsabilisation.
- En janvier, les parents d’élèves de la 4e, 7e et 10e année recevront un sondage de la part d’Alberta Education.
- En février, les élèves de la 4e, 7e et 10e année et tous les enseignants rempliront le sondage en ligne à l’école.
Tous les sondages sont confidentiels et comportent des questions au sujet des expériences de ces groupes de personnes avec votre école. Le sondage pour les parents est offert en français et en anglais, mais aussi en chinois, en punjabi, en arabe, en pied-noir, en déné, en cri, en coréen, en espagnol, en tagalog et en ourdou.
Votre participation au sondage nous permet d’obtenir des renseignements importants sur la qualité de l’enseignement reçu par votre enfant; nous vous invitons donc à nous faire parvenir vos réponses sans tarder.
Les résultats du sondage seront présentés aux autorités scolaires en mai et rendus publics dans le plan d'éducation triennal et le rapport annuel des résultats en éducation de chaque autorité scolaire.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: STUDENT PARKING
Please do not sit in vehicles during the lunch hour or breaks, as there is not adequate supervision for students to be doing so. If you are going to your car at lunch, it is intended that you are doing so to leave school property. Students can take advantage of seating and healthy lunch options in the school cafeteria or grad hall. There are also intramurals and clubs running during the lunch hour.
This will be monitored and enforced starting Monday Nov 26th, 2018.
Thank you for understanding.
