ASSURANCE PLANNING-EICS/ALBERTA EDUCATION ACCOUNTABILITY SURVEYS
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.
· In January, parents of students in grades 4 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.
· In February, students in grades 4 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school. Your 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.
Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2019, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.
EICS will also be surveying our Grade 4 students between January 16th and February 23rd. This will also be facilitated at St. Patrick Catholic School. Additionally, EICS will survey all parents as well. Surveys will be sent between Jan 29-Feb. 23)
For current and up to date information please go to the school website or EICS App!
To register for Kindergarten in the 2019-2020 school year, your child must be five years old on or before December 31, 2019.
St. Pat's offers a Junior Entry (3 year old) Program and a Pre-Kindergarten (4 year old) Program.
