Alberta Education is conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Surveys from January to end of February 2011.
Parents of students of Grades 4, 7 and 10 students (all parents of students Grade 4 and above for Charter schools) will receive a survey mailed to their homes directly from Alberta Education. In addition to English and French the survey will be available in Mandarin/Cantonese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Cree, Korean, Spanish and Tagalog. Parents wishing to have surveys in a language other than English or French can contact their principal.
In February, students in Grades 4, 7 and 10 (all students Grades 4 and above in Charter schools) and all teachers will be completing their surveys online through their schools.
All surveys are anonymous and no reports will be issued if the number of respondents is fewer than six to further protect the privacy of respondents. Respondents are expected to answer the questions based upon the experiences they have had at their school. Responses for parents of students who have moved during the current school year will be attached to the school in which the student was registered on September 30, 2010.
We strongly encourage your participation as the results help us identify our school and jurisdiction’s strengths and weaknesses. Survey results will be available to jurisdictions by the start of May 2011, and will be reported publicly by jurisdictions as part of the Annual Education Results Reports in the fall of 2011.
