Alberta Education visits schools to confirm September counts for Early Childhood Services and Grades 1 to 12 children and students. School authorities, private schools, private Early Childhood Services operators and charter schools submit these counts and are subject to visits called enrolment verifications. This ensures funding is paid according to the Funding Manual for School Authorities.
Alberta Education reviews student records, working documents and documentation to confirm a school’s claims. This also ensures that school jurisdictions are complying with legislation. Alberta Education provides the results of the enrolment verification to the school authority. If a school is found non-compliant with the School Act and/or the Funding Manual, Alberta Education identifies adjustments and processes them.
