Accountability Pillar Survey

Information for parents:

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 grades 4 & 7 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.
  • In February, students in grades 4 & 7 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is 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 2017, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.

Rabbit Hill Ski Info

For parents of students participating in the Rabbit Hill trips, ski and snowboard equipment can be dropped off on the day of the trip from 7:30am-8:00pm at Muir Lake Hall. A parent volunteer will be at the hall to receive the equipment and store it at the hall for the duration of the school day. After school, students can retrieve it from the hall to load onto the bus.

*Important* Any students that are not able to attend the trip that day due to illness, alternate plans etc, please email or text Jana Williams. Also, if you have made plans for your child not to ride on the bus home, we request that you advise Jana Williams in writing before 6pm as we need to account for all students before leaving the hill. This information is then consolidated and passed on to the on site student coordinator parent.

A huge thank you to all of the parent volunteers, they ensured the safety of all students and a great time was had by all!
