Draft K-6 Curricula

Alberta Education released the draft K-6 curricula last week and is inviting feedback from all Albertans.

EICS will spend the next several weeks unpacking the new curriculum. We will be engaging our teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders before providing our feedback on the survey.

Our EICS educational consultants will be reviewing the new draft curriculum, and we will be engaging teachers in various grades in the review. We will also be seeking input from Alberta Education on what a possible pilot might entail - release time, professional learning, and resources.

Prior to a recommendation being made regarding piloting, EICS is committed to a comprehensive review.

We invite you to provide your feedback to Alberta Education
