Legislation, Policy, Standards and Forms

Legislation

Copyright of the Alberta Statutes and Regulations belongs to the Province of Alberta. No person may use, reproduce, store or transmit copies for any purpose other than personal use without the consent of the Queen's Printer for Alberta

This consolidation has no legislative sanction and has been produced solely for the convenience of research. The official Statutes and Regulations must be consulted for all purposes of interpreting and applying the law.

Policy

The K-12 Learning System Policy, Regulations and Forms Manual has been disbanded and information relocated to either the Guide to Education: ECS to Grade 12 or other appropriate document.  The Guide to Education is now the key policy repository and primary place for information about educational programming and requirements in Alberta.

Policies in the Guide to Education are mandatory.  However, those responsible for implementing policies have some flexibility in choosing the methods of implementation.

For more information, please see the current edition of the Guide to Education.

Copyright

Canadian copyright law continues to evolve in response to existing and emerging technologies, international agreements, and the need for reasonable balance between the rights of users and the rights of creators of copyright-protected works.

The following resources take into account Canada's new copyright law and recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions on fair dealing, and provides practical information for teachers on their rights and responsibilities with regard to the use of copyright-protected materials in educational institutions. Students, parents, and education administrators may also find it useful.
