Alberta Education permits school authorities to develop off-campus education programs and courses in accordance with prescribed guidelines and procedures. Such programs allow junior and senior high school students to investigate a variety of career opportunities.
They also allow senior high school students to gain practical experience as they apply and expand their knowledge, skills and attitudes in contexts that will assist them in making wise decisions regarding their future education, training and employment upon leaving senior high school and allow for the smooth transition from school to work and/or post-secondary institutions.
- The “Changes to the Off-campus Education Handbook” amendment is mandatory for this school year. Please refer to the Program Supports web page.
- Due to phone line infrastructure changes, the Alberta Education fax line (780–422–3745) used by schools to send off-campus Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) documentation to Alberta Education is no longer in use. Please scan and send documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please note that the WCB fax line (780–427–5863) has not been impacted. The off-campus education coordinator, in collaboration with the student’s employer, has the responsibility to submit complete documentation to both WCB and Alberta Education within 72 hours of a reported incident
