Alberta Education is conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Surveys from January to end of February 2019. These surveys are necessary and help guide our school. Parents of students of grade 4 and 7 will receive a survey mailed to their homes directly from Alberta Education. Also, all students in grade 4 and 7 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online through their schools.
All surveys are anonymous. Respondents are expected to answer the questions based on the experiences they have had at their school.
We strongly encourage your participation as the results help us identify our school and jurisdiction’s strengths and weaknesses. Survey results will be available to jurisdictions by the start of May 2019 and will be reported publicly by jurisdictions as part of the Annual Education Results Reports in the fall of 2019.
Also, please note if you answer “don’t know” on the survey questions, it indirectly becomes a “no” response. Please see the below example:
The Accountability Survey will report that only 33% of our parents believe “High School students demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for learning throughout their lifetime.” Parents may skip any question they feel does n.ot apply. Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the survey.
Also, next week, after consulting with School Council, Father Leonard Van Tighem School will be sending out a school created survey to get all our parents and staff to get their input about some specific topics about our learning community.
