Parkland School Division is part of an Assurance Model pilot for Alberta Education. An Assurance Model means that stakeholders are actively engaged in the development of local priorities and plans. The intent is that local measures, when combined with provincial ones, should provide a more balanced and complete assessment of progress on priority outcomes and goals. As the Division engages stakeholders, the plan ensures that the Division is both forward- thinking and responsive to stakeholder concerns. Assurance, as a measure of confidence, can be revealed through engagement processes.
