Accountability Pillar Survey
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school jurisdictions to ensure 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. Over the last number of years, many school jurisdictions have also used the Tell Them From Me student survey as part of their accountability process. This year, Alberta Education offered an opportunity for school jurisdictions to administer a student survey consisting of both the Accountability Pillar questions and selected measures from the Tell Them From Me survey. EIPS is pleased to be a part of this project.
In January, parents of students in grade 10 should have received an Accountability Pillar survey from Alberta Education in the mail. In February, students in grades 10-12 will complete the combined Accountability Pillar and Tell Them From Me survey. All teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with the school. Parents’ 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.
Alberta Education will provide Elk Island Public Schools will the results of all surveys conducted in our school division in May 2014. These results are shared with our parents and communities as part of our Three-Year Education Plan and Annual Education Results Report.
Excellence in Teaching
The Excellence in Teaching Program gives Albertans' an excellent opportunity to honour teachers and principals for the outstanding work they do in classrooms across the province. We encourage parents and students to consider nominating deserving teachers. Nomination packages can be obtained by downloading them from www.education.alberta.ca/teachers/excellence.aspx.
