The Accountability Pillar provides a new way for school authorities to measure their success, and assess their progress towards meeting their learning goals.
The Accountability Pillar:
This combined data provides a picture of school authority and individual school performance, including areas of success and potential challenges that may lie ahead.
School authorities and schools analyze this data and the many variables that may affect results, allowing school authorities to focus on improving student learning and achievement.
As part of the accountability process, school authorities report their Accountability Pillar results to their communities. Sharing the results with their communities allows Albertans to see how their school authority is performing. This ensures that the entire education system is more open and accountable to all Albertans.
The Accountability Pillar is part of Alberta's funding framework for schools.
