Alberta Education – Accountability Pillar

Interesting Links

Alberta has developed an innovative way of measuring school authority performance to ensure we continue to provide the best possible education opportunities for all of our students.

The Accountability Pillar along with equitable funding and flexibility and the three pillars of the renewed funding framework.  School authorities receive equitable funding and have maximum flexibility in allocating funds to meet the learning needs of their students. In return,  school authorities are accountable for use of resources and results achieved.

The Accountability Pillar provides school authorities with a wide range of data that paints a picture of how they are performing. The framework focuses on more than student achievement, resulting in a more holistic approach to accountability. Other aspects that impact student learning – such as safe and caring environments, parent involvement, and satisfaction with the education experience – are measured, providing a more complete perspective of the jurisdiction\’s overall learning environment based on the input of students, parents and teachers.
