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. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education 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.  

  • By now, parents of students in grades 4, 7 and 10 in schools with more than 120 students in grades 4 an up, or all parents Grade 4-12 in smaller schools, should have received a survey from Alberta Education. 
  • In February, students in grades 4, 7 and 10 (change to grades 4-12 if applicable) and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.

If an eligible parent has not received their survey by mail yet, they can contact Alberta Education for a replacement by calling 780-422-3959.

Participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving.

Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2017, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact your school principal.
