ALBERTA EDUCATION’S  2014/2015 ACCOUNTABILITY PILLAR SURVEYS

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 consisting of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of 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 via mail.  In January/ February, students in grades 4, 7 and 10 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.  Our grade 4, 5 and 6 students recently completed these surveys together with their Tell Them from me survey.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with the school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is also available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, 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 2015, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.  For more information about the Accountability Survey please do not hesitate to contact me.

Most sincerely,
Michelle Speight
