Alberta’s government is looking for more perspectives from parents and teachers in order to strengthen the education system
Alberta Education is seeking approximately 80 individuals to serve as members of either a Parent Advisory Council or a Teacher Advisory Council. These councils will provide valuable input on the education system directly to the Minister of Education.
Council members will reflect the diversity of Alberta, including a variety of geographical locations, school authority types, socio-economic backgrounds and cultural groups.
Successful applicants for each council will be announced later in the fall.
- The new councils will provide the minister and the department with valuable input on key priorities within a collaborative and respectful setting.
- The advisory council model proposed for parents and teachers is based upon the successful Minister’s Youth Council, a group of approximately 40 Alberta junior and senior high students providing input to the minister and government on provincial education initiatives.
- The councils will consist of approximately 40 members each.
- Council members will serve a 10-month term, aligned with the school year.
- Members will attend up to four meetings with the minister per term.
