Accountability Pillar Survey for Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have been notified that on January 5th Alberta Education started sending, through the mail, the Accountability Pillar Surveys to parents/guardians of students in Grade 4, 7 & 10.  We encourage you to fill these out and return them in the postage paid envelopes.  The data it provides informs both Alberta Education and our School about matters of importance.  The students will do the same survey, online, in the next few weeks at school.  Thankyou!

Professional Development: Dr. Thomas Guskey

The focus of the time teachers will spend with Dr. Guskey is on standards based grading and reporting. It builds on the foundational teacher practice of skillful formative assessment in the classroom. It will give teachers an opportunity to learn together, examine existing practices, thoughtfully plan our way forward, and purposefully incorporate desired practices into our process of continual improvement. We affirm that the skill set of the classroom teacher is the factor with the greatest impact on student learning.
