ACCOUNTABLILTY PILLAR SURVEY

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 consisting of surveys of students,

parents and teachers on various aspects of 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 and 10 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 the 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 2016, and will be reported

publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports
