Alberta Education selects about 250 schools each year for monitoring. Monitoring takes place after schools receive funding. School boards send information to the province after the school year is finished. Ministry staff review this information to make sure schools meet funding and programming requirements.
The ministry is accountable to the people of Alberta and the Auditor General.
Alberta Education also conducts on-site visits at some schools. Ministry staff work closely with school and central office staff to review student assessment documents, student and master timetables, and course outlines.
The ministry will send a final report to the selected schools and central offices after monitoring is finished.
