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 Grade 10 will receive - or already have received - a survey from Alberta Education. These surveys, once completed, should be returned directly to Alberta Education.
The surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school. Parental 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. The last day for all survey submissions is February 23, 2018.
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.
