Alberta Education Survey

Throughout the month of February, parents and guardians across Alberta are being asked to complete Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar survey, an annual checkup on the region’s educational system that’s conducted province-wide. Although school divisions frequently seek parental input, this particular survey—mailed directly to students’ homes—is one of the most impactful ways to influence how education is delivered locally.

Results are provided for each school, and help to determine what is being done well and areas where improvement is needed.

In January, parents and guardians of students in grades 4, 5 and 6 received the survey in the mail and are asked to return it prior to the end of February. Additionally, online surveys are being completed by students and teachers in grades 4, 5 and 6, which provides a broad perspective on a school’s performance in various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.

In addition to the information schools receive about academic achievement, they also able to assess how each school is doing in terms of offering safe and caring environments, preparation for lifelong learning and parent engagement. The parent portion of the survey is an invaluable resource in ensuring schools offer a well-rounded and meaningful educational experience for all students.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about the overall school experience. Results are available to EIPS in May 2017 and are reported publicly as part of the Division’s annual Combined Education Plan and Annual Education Results Report.
